In the coming months, it will be important to ask yourself the following questions.
Will the current and future growth in businesses make up for the fact that the jobs are not being created?
Are existing employees happy and satisfied?
Will the businesses continue to grow or slow down?
Will new businesses and industries take root in the area?
Are there any new entrants in the market that can take advantage of the existing industry or that the industry can use to build on?
Can new businesses flourish in the region?
Will existing businesses and existing industries thrive?
Will local governments create jobs for local residents?
What will the next few years hold for our region?
What will the long-term outlook for this region look like?
As a member of the North Carolina Association of Governments, I’m committed to the advancement of our state and the people of North Carolina.
I’ve spent the last eight years working closely with the NCAG to develop strategies for our state to create and support a prosperous economy.
As an elected official and a member-elect, I’ve always been a firm believer in working to make North Carolina the place we want it to be.
As the Chair of the NCGA Executive Board, I know the hard work our members have put in for the state’s long-lasting economic growth.
My job is to bring our members together to work toward a vision of a prosperous and secure future for North Carolina and the state as a whole.
In the coming weeks, I will be sharing my thoughts on this issue with members of the executive board.
The North Carolina Business Coalition and NCGA have been working hard to bring the best business ideas to the table in our state.
It is imperative that we find a way to grow our economy, grow jobs, and ensure our communities thrive in the future.
I look forward to working with the Executive Board and our members to develop solutions that will benefit the people, businesses, and state.
Thanks for joining us on this exciting moment.
