State of Series: The Community

The Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to host the State of Series, a quarterly event with topics that focus on the currently status of the following areas:

  • The Chamber – We will briefly discuss current efforts at the national and state level. Then, we will cover where our business community stands in the move toward resiliency and how the Chamber will focus its collective strength to address the current needs.


  • The Workforce – The current state of our community’s workforce, a review of steps being taken to improve gaps and a look ahead at what other work may be coming to skill-up and develop our region’s workforce to create new jobs.


  • The Community – A brief overview of issues facing our community (more specific topics will be determined closer to the date). Learn how the community is addressing them, what needs to be accomplished and the work that is being done for those issues.


  • Growth – How our community plans to take steps to advance to the next level. Specific topics will be determined closer to date but could include growth of economy, workforce, business development, etc.
