Save the Date! The Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development will be hosting its annual Industrial Appreciation Banquet on Thursday, October 27th. In addition to a great networking reception, we’ll highlight accomplishments from the previous year, recognize key partners, and have questions answered from a panel of Henderson County’s legislative delegation. Representative David Guice (District 113), Representative Chuck McGrady (District 117), and Senator Tom Apaodaca (District 48, Chairman of Rules and Operations of the Senate) will address questions about North Carolina policy and regulation that impacts the business climate of Henderson County. Attendees will be asked prior to the event to submit questions for consideration.
The Industrial Appreciation Banquet began in 2003 as a way to recognize the contributions of the manufacturing sector in Henderson County as well as thank those that support the efforts of the Partnership. Through the years, the event has developed as a time to not only show appreciation, but also reflect on the activities and successes of the year. Generous sponsorships allow manufacturers, members and elected officials to attend at no cost. 2011 Presenting Sponsors are Duke Energy & PSNC Energy. Supporting Sponsors are First Citizens Bank, Friday Staffing Services, GE Lighting Solutions and IMOCO. Limited sponsor opportunities are still available, email [email protected] if you are interested.
The 2011 dinner will again be held at the Virginia Boone Center located at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center. A pre-dinner reception will be held at the Ag Center’s newly constructed Davis Event Center. Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for a formal invitation in the coming weeks.
