Every citizen of Hartselle, from the student of Hartselle City Schools, to the CEO of our largest Industrial Corporations, is a stakeholder in the shaping of our city. Having the opportunity to connect directly with those that are serving our town as leaders is a privilege that empowers our community and enables our leaders to be more responsive to the issues that improve the quality of life in Hartselle. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of what is happening across every sector of our town – schools, technology, business and public policy and having had the opportunity to interact with leadership in a personal way.
Data collected by the Census Bureau is considered by business and industry as valuable, unbiased data collected by a neutral third party. An improvement in a community’s Census data could mean additional retail and restaurant growth as well as more consideration from companies wishing to expand or relocate, creating job opportunities.

In 2010, Alabama had a 72 percent response rate to the census with lower rates particularly in west Alabama and in some urban areas. This participation rate won’t be enough for 2020. Together, we can make sure that Alabama’s voices are heard. You count. Alabama counts.
