Immigration reform in relation to seasonal farm workers, federal regulatory environment effects on businesses, the marketplace fairness act in relation to small internet retailers, education system, voter ID, and much more was all discussed at last year’s first ever Sampson Perspective. As the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce strives to serve as a voice for our membership and the local community, we are offering a second event and the date for the 2014 Sampson Perspective is quickly approaching with a variety of topics in view.
As the vehicle to reach our local, state, and national representation, last August the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce hosted the first “Sampson Perspective.” With standing room only, last year’s event received rave reviews. On Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014, the 2nd Sampson Perspective will take place at 5:30 p.m. at Sampson Community College in room O-140. Through this event, the mission is to provide an avenue for the community to ask the most pressing questions to our leaders.
Sitting on the 2014 Sampson County Executive Leadership Panel will be: Congressman Mike McIntyre, Senator Richard Burr, Rep. Janet Bradbury, Sen. Brent Jackson, Rep. Larry Bell, Rep. William Brisson, County Manager Ed Causey, and Clinton City Manager Shawn Purvis.
We encourage Chamber members to submit a question to a specific panel member to be reviewed for inclusion in this moderated event. Our goal is to take submitted questions to ask the panel members in order for our members to gain answers to their questions and concerns. After the moderated portion of the event, if time allows, questions will be taken from the audience.
We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to meet key leaders and discuss a variety of topics in order to promote economic growth and a higher quality of life within Sampson County. Again, we hope to see you for this free event opportunity on Wednesday, Sept. 3rd, at 5:30 p.m.
If you would like to submit a question, please e-mail your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the 2014 “Sampson Perspective” give us a call at 910-592-6177 or visit www.clintonsampsonchamber.org. Let the Chamber work for you!
(Editor’s note: Janna Bass is the executive director of the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce.)
