Over 200 attendees, including elected officials and business leaders from across our region participated in the 2023 Catawba Regional Forum. Federal Reserve Senior Economist Dr. Laura Ullrich provided a ‘State of the State’ overview regarding workforce participation across South Carolina and moderated a panel discussion featuring leaders of our region’s higher education institutions, including:
  • Dr. Edward Serna, Winthrop University
  • Dr. Stacey Moore, York Technical College
  • Dr. Walter Collins, USC–Lancaster
  • Dr. Lester McCorn, Clinton College
  • Dr. Randy Lowell, USC–Union

The forum was the result of a partnership between Catawba Regional Council of Governments and the Regional Chamber, with participation by all chambers in our four-county area. Providing vital workforce strategy updates, the event was not only informative, but also an opportunity to connect and build relationships across our region.

The big take-away? While the business community often communicates the need for support from educators, this economy requires reciprocal action from both employers and elected officials.
