The Anson Economic Development Summit has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, Feb. 26, after being postponed last week due to the winter storm. The summit, which is the first of its kind in Anson County, will be held at the Lockhart-Taylor Center in Wadesboro from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.
This event is co-sponsored by the Anson Economic Development Corporation and the Anson County Chamber, and is designed to highlight the unique perspectives and challenges posed to the business community of Anson County. The summit will be moderated by Wadesboro Town Manager Alex Sewell, and Scott Collier from SPCC will be gathering questions, comments and concerns during the event to create a report for additional dialogue.
The summit is described as “a local conference to discuss the current state of Anson County economic development, generate ideas and foster discussion.”
The agenda includes presentations from County Manager Lawrence Gatewood and director of economic development Mary Beck, farmer Dale Nelson, manufacturers Hornwood Inc., Southern Fabricators, and Columbus McKinnon, legislators Sen. Gene McLaurin, Rep. Mark Brody, and Rep. Craig Horne, Anson County Schools Superintendent Michael Freeman, South Piedmont Community College president Stan Sidor, Regional Workforce Development’s David Hollars, and Tammy Whaley with Duke Energy.
Please plan to attend and participate in an event that organizers hope will be a continuing contribution to our county’s economic health.
