Due to ice, sleet and snow causing hazardous driving conditions, the Cheatham County Prosperity Summit scheduled for February 17th has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date, most likely late April or early May. The Cheatham County Prosperity Summit is hosted by Cheatham County in conjunction with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and WealthWorks, with support from the Ford Foundation. Cheatham County was selected through a competitive application process to host the summit, which will introduce Cheatham County to the WealthWorks framework, help build strategies to strengthen regional relationships and identify ways to deepen and sustain economic development activities. The full-day event will convene business and community leaders from Cheatham County, national experts and NACo staff to discuss asset-based economic development and generate creative solutions to strengthen the local economy. Since Cheatham County recently completed a strategic tourism inventory and plan, tourism and small business development will be the main focus of the summit.
Save-the-date notifications will be sent out as soon as details are finalized and invitations will follow.
