Strategic Initiatives Council Legislative Overview Meeting

A broad range of speakers representing municipalities, county government, business/industry, FHWA and NCDOT will provide their unique perspectives on 2017 legislation to date, discussing what they wanted to happen, what actually happened and why. During the afternoon, there will be an audience-interactive, roundtable discussion of what our guest speakers see coming during the 2018 legislative session and what they see as the “big issues” confronting us over the next 5 years.
