Cary Chamber Planning Conference

Planning Conference

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending the Cary Chamber of Commerce Planning Conference.  This was my 3rd year in a row attending the conference down in lovely Pinehurst, NC.  The Planning Conference is a time for leaders in the community to spend time together determining the direction for the coming Chamber year in order to create the 2013-2014 Business Plan.  I always enjoy the Planning Conference as I get to meet and network with many of our local leaders, politicians and volunteers.  This year we stayed at The Carolina Pinehurst Resort, such a beautiful property!!!  The agenda on Wednesday included listening to different seminars, speakers and topics that featured everything from a Wake County Update by Wake County Commissioners to a Roundtable Discussion on Imagine Cary.

Coming to Pinehurst in 2014

We gathered for an evening social and then had dinner with Keynote Speaker, Don Padgett, II, President of Pinehurst.  He talked about he US Open 2014 Men’s & Women’s Tournaments that will be held at Pinehurst.  Thursday was a spent working in small groups in breakout work sessions with the different Vice Chairs, followed by an afternoon golf game.  I’m pleased to serve the Cary Chamber again this year as Vice Chair for Member Business Services.  I had a wonderful time at the Planning Conference, enjoyed spending time with friends and would like to say “GREAT JOB” to the 2012-2013 Cary Chamber Chair, Kathy Burns.  She did a fantastic job leading the Cary Chamber this past year and I admire her for all of her leadership!  As always, I look forward to the Planning Conference next year!  Thanks also to My Girlfriend’s Closet for great dresses to wear at the Planning Conference!  My Girlfriend’s Closet is having a BIG SUMMER SALE this weekend, go check them out and tell them you read about them in!
