VGCC and Chambers schedule second Business Summit, seek sponsors

The success of last year’s inaugural Business Summit, organized by the Vance-Granville Community College Small Business Center in partnership with the Granville County Chamber of Commerce, the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber of Commerce of Warren County and the Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, has prompted organizers to plan a second annual event. The 2013 Business Summit is scheduled for Tuesday, October 22, from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. at the VGCC Civic Center.

With the theme, “Knowing What’s Vital to Your Business Today,” the event will include discussions on health-care, branding, marketing and leadership. The Business Summit features not only guest speakers and informative presentations, but also opportunities for area businesses and organizations that co-sponsor the event to tell attendees about their products and services in an “expo” setting.

VGCC and the Chambers are currently seeking sponsors at various levels, including “Presenting Sponsor,” “Gold Sponsor” and “Silver Sponsor.”

The deadline to become a sponsor of the second annual Business Summit is August 15, 2013.
