The quality of our region’s current and future workforce is increasingly seen as the most important factor impacting economic growth and vitality. The Cashiers Area Chamber invites you to participate in “State of Our Workforce: Western NC,” an analysis launched by the Asheville Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the North Carolina Chamber Foundation, Economic Development Partnership of NC, and Mountain Area Workforce Development Board. The State of Our Workforce initiative was launched as a study in the Research Triangle but this new expanded program will help local stakeholders -- including businesses, educators, and community leaders -- better understand workforce challenges through area-specific data.
