NBCC Luncheon Meeting - Jim Bradshaw - Brunswick County Economic Development

The monthly speaker luncheons of the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce are a great way to get and stay informed about what's going on in the area. This month's meeting was no exception. Terry Grillo, the NBCC's Executive Director emceed the luncheon at Antonio's Pizza and Pasta Restaurant in Leland, NC.

The first speaker was Patricia Underwood, Principal of Leland Middle School. Ms. Underwood told us about the innovative, proactive program she introduced at her school to motivate and inspire the kids about higher education. This is a successful program to raise the sights of area children and we're proud of her work.

The featured speaker was Jim Bradshaw, Director of Economic Development for Brunswick County. Jim gave us a fact-filled presentation about what's happening right now in Brunswick County and a look at what is coming this year, next year, and for the next 10-15-20 years.
Here's a link to download Jim Bradshaw's Powerpoint presentation on Brunswick County Economic Development - the file is on, a pretty cool online storage program. When I asked for a copy of the presentation, he generously gave it to me on a thumb drive at the end of the meeting (a personalized thumb drive he got from our buddies and NBCC members Logos Direct).

We had a great turnout at the meeting. We have a lot of fun, we get to break bread together (well, eat pizza anyway) and hear great speakers. So join us.
