Scenes from the Chamber Annual Retreat and the Day of Service: #ListenRandolph
Our first-ever "local" Retreat and "Day of Service" was a great success! Attendees spent Friday, Oct 23rd at the George Washington Carver Center for three sessions on diversity, equality, and inclusion. On Saturday, Oct 24th's Day of Service, we added youth from our attendees' families and the Village of Barnabas. A fun morning spent helping CUOC, Habitat for Humanity, and Pathways of Hope. Thanks to everyone - including our generous sponsors - for making this a special two days.
The NC Main Street & Rural Planning Center Needs Over 2,000 Small Businesses to Leverage More Resources for THEM!
The NC Main Street & Rural Planning Center (NCMS&RP) has formed a partnership with the Small Business Technology Development Center (SBTDC) to survey small businesses (under 100 employees) across North Carolina to identify their greatest needs. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and will provide them with important information to customize statewide training webinars and small business assistance that fits the needs of small businesses in NC.

We are looking for 2000 small business responses from across the state. We ask that you share this survey with the small businesses in your community and strongly encourage them to complete it no later than Friday, October 23, 2020. The success of this survey depends on the number of NC small businesses that complete the survey so please encourage them to complete and share the link with other NC small businesses. If you have questions, please contact Karen Smith.
