We lead the people of Statesville in creating a thriving community.
We connect all sectors of the community, generating education and economic opportunities to improve the quality of life.
Where is the Chamber headed.....
A strategic plan is simply a piece of paper that defines direction. Dig deeper, and it defines strategy and helps define the needs and uses of resources. I was amazed by the amount of effort people were willing to put in to create this road map. Work has already started in every category of the plan. The leadership group is excited, the staff is excited , and now I hope you are excited by what we are working on. I have no doubt that in three years we will need to build on this plan and continue to challenge the Chamber to be the "connector" the community demands.
- Jeff Smith, 2018 Chairman of the board
What does the community look like 3 years from now....
Forever the optimist and looking for the good in others, I take the same approach with how I envision our community in three years and beyond. Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones to real progress in thriving communites. In order for the Greater Statesville area to fully realize its potential, we must embrace the value and contributions of all. Our success lies at the feet of our willingness to think, act, and respond inclusively and in the trust we develop in each other. The chamber is poised to be central to this as we intentionally reach further into our communities to support business growth and development that support an increasingly diverse community. Together, we can make what seems impossible possible.
- Bryan Duncan, Chair Elect
