Simon Jones (pictured), CEO and founder of NatureScapes, will talk about his experiences in guiding communities to develop tourism strategies that tells the story of a place with an eye on sustainability and respect. Jones is one of the consultants for the UPLIFT program being introduced to Bladen County the day before the annual meeting.

During the annual meeting, Dennison will provide an update on Chamber projects and the 2022 Awards will be presented to individuals and businesses.
