I’m honored to announce that my tenure on the board of the (formerly Charlotte Chamber of Commerce) Charlotte Regional Business Alliance is extending, although evolving. Since transitioning off the CCYP board (Young Professionals – now the Charlotte Alliance Young Professionals) I have now joined the Central Chapter board!
To get some insight into what that means:
“The specific chapters play a key role in driving the mission to connect, innovate and grow opportunity for ALL who do business in Charlotte. The purpose of the Central Chapter is to serve as a liaison within its service area between the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance and its membership. The chapter will offer programs and initiatives as well as facilitate communication aimed at the fulfillment of the chamber’s mission. The geographical regional boundaries of the Central Chapter include: Center City, Wilkinson Boulevard to the north and Morris Field Drive to the east, Monroe Road and Sharon Amity Road.”
Considering my firm’s office is right near uptown Charlotte this looks to be a really great fit.
I will certainly miss the Young Professional’s board as it was not only rewarding professionally, but it was also such a blast. Helping to chair the inaugural “YP Leadership Convergence” was an experience I’ll never forget. It left such a profound impact that I’ve volunteered to be on the committee yet again despite my varying scope from the board perspective.
Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with the result of the merger between the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce and the Charlotte Regional Partnership, there is an entirely new name, branding, messaging, and focus. A lot of time and effort went into creating this so I’ll allow them to articulate the specifics for you…
