A prominent, pervasive threat is impacting the economic growth in Union County and keeping the community from reaching its full potential. Union County is one of the fastest-growing counties in North Carolina. But infrastructure challenges along with misconceptions and limiting attitudes could end up negatively impacting the community we love so much.
Lack of accountability and unwillingness to collaborate fosters resistance to change and encourages territorial leadership and siloed decision-making.
While Union County consists of 14 distinctly unique municipalities, we are one community. To create viable solutions to the challenges our community faces today and prepare for the opportunities of tomorrow, all stakeholders must work together with a common purpose while honoring the unique culture each area of our county offers.
We've invited celebrated community-building expert and author Doug Griffiths to share an interactive and revelatory workshop to help local leaders, business owners, and residents gain a fresh perspective, new insights and create a successful future for Union County.
Doug will bring his decades of experience to a community workshop tailored to Union County's challenges. Using his vast experience talking with municipal and community leaders from across North America, Doug combines alarming examples and humorous stories to help find answers to questions that have plagued communities as they try to reach their full potential. This powerful workshop has the potential to reshape a positive future for Union County beyond what we can imagine.
Join us as we learn from Doug how to dismantle the roadblocks so our region can thrive.
