Why did your organization join NCWA?: The Chamber has a history of helping businesses prosper within our community. Hearing from our members and others about the disconnect in finding qualified workers, we knew we needed to help find solutions. Businesses cannot prosper if they don’t have enough employees to get their products out the door!
The mission of NCWA really resonated with us as we work with other organizations in sectors throughout the region to attract the next generation, train new and existing employees, and develop relevant training programs. In addition, the Chamber is uniquely positioned to be an “NCWA voice” to and for our members. Bringing collective minds together (teamwork!) can achieve some amazing results and we are excited to see what NCWA can accomplish for our community!
