Two Words to Our Volunteer Team Members: Thank You
As part of Economic Development Week, NETWORKS Sullivan Partnership would like to thank the many volunteers for their invaluable service to our communities and region. One of the best aspects of an economic development career is that it enables you to work closely with community leadership. We rely on this leadership more than you might know.
Our Board of Directors is the group with whom we work most closely. Having a board with representation from the public sector along with various private business sectors gives us direction that takes many perspectives and considerations into account. It gives us a holistic, scrutinizing strategic plan and scope of work.
We also work with the Sullivan County IDB, Bristol IDB, Kingsport EDB, and Hawkins County IDB. The collective and individual relationships are of great value to us as economic developers and citizens. Most importantly, they help ensure that well-thought-out, responsible decisions are made.
So, we say thank you to the men and women who help guide our efforts. You receive no pay, very little thanks, and a whole heap of responsibility and demands on your time. Please know that your participation is of great value and appreciated greatly. Thank you for being such important members of our team!
