We invite you to a special Homecoming at “Gather ‘Round the Blue Ridge” 2015
This year’s annual meeting of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership (BRNHAP) will bring a long-time friend home to be our guest speaker. Scott Hamilton, Executive Director of the Appalachian Regional Commission, was with AdvantageWest for ten years, serving in several capacities, including CEO. He has also served in economic development positions in Henderson and Caldwell Counties. Today, Scott is our voice in Washington for things concerning the Appalachian Region.
Please join us in welcoming Scott! BRNHAP staff will share program updates about the Blue Ridge Music Trails of NC and profile reports of Heritage Area Grants Projects. Enjoy good food, music, and networking. And, you won’t want to miss the special celebration marking the installation of the Blue Ridge Heritage Trail signs!
