The forum will recognize organizations or initiatives that are having a significant impact across the region in five key areas: human potential, economic and entrepreneurial vitality, sustainable growth, natural beauty and resources, and community vibrancy.
The event will also recognize organizations and programs celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2012.
Tommy Spaulding, national speaker and author of the best-selling book It’s Not Just Who You Know, will be the keynote speaker. Spaulding has been recognized by Meetings & Conventions Magazine as one of the best personal development speakers in the country.
The event is free and open to the public. It will be from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday at Greenville Technical College in the J. Verne Smith Technical Research Center Auditorium at 620 S. Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville. A networking reception will immediately follow the forum. Register online. More than 200 people have registered thus far.
