Economic Development Lunch & Learn
The Chamber's Economic Development Committee hosted a Lunch & Learn featuring TN Commissioner of Economic Development Randy Boyd on Thursday, January 28 at the Lebanon Golf & Country Club.
Throughout the hourlong informative luncheon, Comm. Boyd discussed a variety of subjects ranging from how education impacts employment to broadband availability across the state. The issue of broadband connectivity has implications in a variety of areas, including education and employment. Currently, his office is conducting online surveys to assess the broadband availability throughout all ninety-five counties, with particular attention to rural areas. To access and participate in the survey, TN residents may visit http://www.tn.gov/ecd/section/broadband-survey.
Thank you to all those in the community who attended the Lunch & Learn. This was the largest such event that the Lebanon Wilson Co. Chamber has seen to date.
