16The Greater Fayetteville Chamber presents the State of the Community event Aug. 31 at the Crown Expo Center. This highly informational annual event will assemble Fayetteville and Cumberland County leaders under one roof to discuss current conditions and future developments throughout the region.

During this event government officials, lawmakers, and administrators will present topics such as economic development, healthcare, education, military, local government, and the positive impact of collaborative partnerships such as Cape Fear Valley Health, the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County Schools, and the Longleaf Pine Realtors.

Nat Robertson, president and CEO of the Greater Fayetteville Chamber, states “Our goal is to bring the most up-to-date information to our members and the best way we have found to do that is from the representatives themselves. It is imperative that our members educate themselves on the state of our community so they can better prepare themselves and their businesses on what is coming next”.

The keynote speaker for this event is Josh Dobson, the NC Commissioner of Labor.

Dobson is the 18th labor commissioner in the State of North Carolina. He served for eight years in the state House of Representatives representing the 85th district covering Avery, McDowell and Mitchell counties in the western part of N.C.

He also previously served as chair of the house appropriations committee and the chair of the house health committee. Additionally, speakers for the 2023 State of the Community will include: Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin; Dr. Toni Stewart, Chair of the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners; Dr. Marvin Connelly, Superintendent of Cumberland County Schools; Melissa McKinney, President of the Board, Longleaf Pine Realtors; Daniel Weatherly, Chief Operations Officer of the Cape Fear Valley Health System.

Greater Fayetteville Chamber State of the Community will take place on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2023 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Crown Expo Center located at 1960 Coliseum Drive.
