Despite weather, Hudson still set to speak at Chamber of Commerce Thursday

Rowan County Chamber of Commerce

Congressman Richard Hudson will speak at the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce’s Power in Partnership breakfast on Thursday at 7:30 a.m. at Trinity Oaks at 728 Klumac Road.

The Facebook Small Business Boost seminar previously scheduled in conjunction with the breakfast has been canceled. The Facebook team’s travel plans were interrupted due to the winter storm.

Hudson was elected in November 2012 to represent North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District. He graduated from Myers Park High School in Charlotte and earned his bachelor of arts degree in history and political science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte while serving as student body president.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Hudson founded Cabarrus Marketing Group, a small business in Concord, that provides strategic communications consulting and business development services. As a small business owner and operator, Hudson understands the challenges confronting business leaders who struggle to remain competitive and successful in an uncertain economy.

The upcoming Power in Partnership dates are: March 19, April 16 and May 21. There are no breakfast meetings in the summer months. The 2015-16 Power in Partnership season will start again in September and run through May 2016. Those interested in obtaining a Power Card can contact the Chamber. The Power Card is the Rowan Chamber’s frequent attender program. Card holders receive a discounted price for the series and do not have to make a reservation each month.

Please join us for this upcoming breakfast. If you are not a Power Card holder, individual reservations are welcome; however, the reservation deadline is today by 5 p.m. The cost is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. The price includes the cost of breakfast and the program. Contact the Chamber at 704-633-4221 or info@rowanchamber.com.
