Registration is open for the inaugural Zebulon Next — an Economic Growth Conference organized by the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce.  This one-day event is scheduled for Thursday, October 6, 2016, 7:45am to 10:30am.

Denise Nowell of the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce says that this event aims to:

“…create an opportunity to share what is on the horizon for Zebulon, and bring together local and area business leaders to hear about opportunities for growth and expansion.”

The day will begin with a networking breakfast, then move into a discussion by hand-picked presenters offering insight on what is ahead for Zebulon — from a State, County and Town perspective.

Breakfast offerings by local restaurants and caterers will be served.

As the eastern-most town in Wake County, Zebulon is directly experiencing the movement of growth. With more than 60 new Wake County residents a day, Zebulon continue to realize expansion. Local and regional business leaders will join town and chamber staff to discuss perspectives for growth in our community. Speakers will progress from a State-wide snapshot of current conditions, to county-wide, and area-wide updates, and then conclude with Zebulon-specific plans and an overview of what’s next for the town.

Presenters include:

  • Dr. Mike Walden — NC State Economist
  • Joe Moore — Zebulon Town Manager
  • Adrienne Cole — Wake County Economic Development
  • Jim Simpson — COO of the North Carolina Chamber
  • Harry Swendsen — Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina

Locally invested businesses sharing their vision for doing business in Zebulon include:

  • Mark Andrews — TME Investments
  • Elisa Moore — Fonville Morisey Realty / Five County Specialists
  • Carnell Taylor — Second Wind Computers

Make plans to join the conference and play a role in this critical step forward for Zebulon. Help make an impact together for this community. As a first-time event, the number of attendees is not yet confirmed, but many are expected to participate.
