Description


We're excited to announce a new event this September called the Surry Leadership Summit.

The mission for the summit is to foster a sense of cooperation between the town councils, Board of Supervisors, and citizens in order to promote the county's economic strengths and solve its challenges.

As an organization dedicated to establishing economic development in the county, our goals for this event include:

  • Gather contact information from Surry County citizens to organize larger events related to economic development, increase membership, grow our email list to publish messages from chamber businesses, or even find potential candidates to run for public office who are for healthy economic growth.
  • Encourage the county government's Economic Development Director to work with the county and town councils to research Surry County's economic strengths and bring in new businesses that meet our community's values.
  • Host an event that will foster a sense of community between Surry's civic leaders, entrepreneurs and citizens to forge a new and united economic vision for Surry County.

GUEST SPEAKERS:

- Anna Hansen, President of the Surry County Chamber of Commerce

- Tyrone Franklin, County Administrator for Surry County

- Melissa Rollins, Economic Development Director for Surry County

- Nancy Rodriguez, Secretary of Administration for the State of Virginia

- More speakers to be announced!

The Summit will also feature:

  • A casual, positive environment for Surry’s leaders to congregate together and speak about our future as a community.
  • Host several speakers on the town, county and state levels to discuss economic unity and opportunity.
  • Wine Tastings from Hampton Roads Winery.
  • Light snacks, music and more!
