Let's Talk About Employee Childcare Challenges
We are inviting you or a representative from your company to participate in a Childcare Roundtable Discussion on September 29, 9-10am at the Cabarrus Center in downtown Concord (Map).

For many families, decisions about childcare are also decisions about work. Cabarrus County has been and continues to be intentional about understanding and meeting the childcare needs of working families in the county. In partnership with Cabarrus County, we will be hosting a Childcare Roundtable to identify and evaluate the current impact childcare has on families, employers, and the workforce.

Contact Shanell Varner at the Cabarrus EDC to let us know if you would like to participate.
