Attendees of the Walker County Chamber of Commerce’s March Membership Luncheon on Tuesday, will be introduced to Thrive 2055 – Reaching Beyond Today by presenter Bridgett Massengill.
The focus of Thrive 2055 is the tri-state region of Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama connected by landscape, watersheds, and local issues. There are 16 counties and 79 municipalities within the region.
Officials said, "Thrive 2055 is a volunteer-driven, public-private initiative focused on proactively engaging people from across the region, connected by landscape and common experiences, in setting a course for a shared future. This initiative is an opportunity for local businesses, non-profit organizations, government representatives, and citizens for the 16-County Tri-State region to come together to examine the successes and challenges and plan a course of action for how all can work together for a brighter tomorrow."
Attendees will hear highlights of the program and learn why it is taking place, who is involved, why it is important and how they can get involved.
