Join us for the first installment of the Wilson Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Public Policy Series, presented by The Action Group. Our Closer Look... luncheon will feature guest speaker Leslie Boney. Leslie Boney is the Executive Director of the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University. IEI is a “think and do tank” that works to identify key issues of importance to the state and develop consensus for action. Mr. Boney will be discussing the institute’s new ReCONNECT NC initiative, along with how IEI is working to bridge the urban and rural divide that is directly affecting communities like Wilson.
ABOUT THE CHAMBER’S PUBLIC POLICY SERIES
The Public Policy Series brings together experts on the economy, education, and government to explore the important issues facing businesses in Wilson. Held four times annually, each event is designed to inform our members on critical issues, and introduce them to policy makers whose decisions have a direct impact on the places they live and work. Previous series events have included industry updates, local economic forecasts, and presentations from elected and appointed officials.
