Building Regional Leadership
Introducing our keynote, Larry Terry, Director, UVA Weldon Cooper Center
Where Are We Headed?
The Growth & Diversification Investment Plan uncovered not just new opportunities, but also many hidden ‘diamonds’—successes already occurring in our footprint. We wanted to celebrate those successes and give our communities an opportunity to learn from each other.
Business leaders, educators, government officials and anyone else dedicated to the economic vitality of Southern Virginia were encouraged to attend. The event included a workshop, presentations, and a panel discussion, all of which will highlight SOVA successes and discuss where the initiative is headed. Guests also experienced a “Taste of the Region” with SOVA Food Hub and beverage vendors.
