County EDC Directors were invited to Atlanta, Georgia for an event hosted by RTRP, NC Electric Cooperatives, PSNC and ElectriCities. This event catered to site-selection consultants and foreign consulate staff. Economic Developers from Johnston, Lee, Harnett, Chatham, Granville, Franklin, Person, Warren and Wilson counties attended the event. Speaker Moore spoke for about 10 minutes and did a wonderful job talking about the strengths of our state, transportation and infrastructure spending, our colleges and universities, community colleges and our quality of life that makes N.C. an attractive state to locate a business.
