2017 Tennessee Economic and Community Development Conference

The 64th Annual Tennessee Governor’s Conference on Economic & Community Development on October 26th and 27th, 2017 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Economic development professionals, business leaders, community leaders and elected officials will be attending, including some from Cheatham County.  This is the first time in my economic and community development career that the conference has been held outside Nashville, but this will highlight the fact that Gatlinburg area is open for business after the wildfires of last year. Governor Bill Haslam and Commissioner Bob Rolfe of the Tennessee Department of Economic & Community Development will host the conference where new knowledge will be presented and attendees will network and share ideas. In addition, the Governor’s Three Star Awards for economic and community development will be presented to counties that have earned that status for the year.

Details on what I am sure will be another great conference is posted on the Tennessee Governor’s Conference on Economic & Community Development event website, www.govcon.tnecd.com.
