Supply, NC— SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 — The South Brunswick Business Development Committee, a 501(c)3 operating under the umbrella of the Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting the third in an ongoing series of breakfast meetings branded as the ‘BrunscoBiz Breakfast Series’ on Thursday, September 24. If you’re a Student, Parent or looking to enter or re-enter the Brunswick County Workforce and interested in securing a job in a high demand industry, or an existing employer seeking a pipeline of qualified workers to help your business expand and grow, this informational panel discussion is not to be missed!
Dr. Gene Smith, President of Brunswick Community College, will kick off the discussion on The New Wave of Workforce Development in Brunswick County.
Greg Bland Vice President, Economic Workforce Development and Continuing Education, will be with us to talk about Pathways to Progress, the $400,000 grant Brunswick Community College is putting to work to build a talent pipeline into the area’s construction industry. “The traditional semester model does not apply to this initiative. It is our goal to have students enter Pathways to Purpose, receive their training, get their credentials, find their employment match and get to work,”
Tim Payne, Center of Advanced Studies Coordinator with Brunswick County Schools, will give an update on current and planned career and technical offerings at The Coast (Center of Applied Sciences and Technology). The already impressive array of options for learning about STEM subjects tied to in-demand, high-paying careers — such as cybersecurity, game art and design, digital design and animation – is growing, giving students at The Coast an edge with what they can put on their resume.
Breakfast and Networking begin at 7:30 with the program starting promptly at 8. $15 includes Breakfast. Advance Registration requested.
