Josh Linkner Headlines 128th Annual Meeting
From cutting edge companies that employ thousands in RTP to visionary startups that are energizing downtown Raleigh, it's clear that innovation and creativity are flourishing in the Triangle.
Join business and community leaders at 128th Annual Meeting as we explore our area's changes and challenges, and find out what the Chamber is doing to drive success.
Our keynote speaker, Josh Linkner, is no stranger to this topic: he's spent his career harnessing the power of creative disruption. Hear his thoughts on Raleigh, and find out how you can tap into your own creativity to find new levels of success (hint: you don't have to invent the next Uber to be considered "creative").
We'll also honor standout businessman and community activist Gregory Poole Jr. with the A.E. Finley Distinguished Service Award, celebrate some of our accomplishments from the past year, and take a look at the future. Board Chair Jill Wells Heath will officially pass the gavel to our next board chair, Greg Winkler of Wells Fargo.
The evening begins with a reception at 5 p.m. followed by dinner and the program at 6.
Feel free to come as you are; there is no dress code for this event.
