’09 Chamber Expo on tap

The Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce’s 2009 Business Expo is on tap for this week.
The Expo will be held Thursday, May 14 and Friday, May 15 at the Bob White Building (formerly the Renfro building) at 4100 Bob White Boulevard in Pulaski.
The Expo’s VIP reception (admission by invitation and ticket only) is set for Thursday evening, and on Friday, the Expo, which is a free event, will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Chamber of Commerce organizes this Business Expo annually as a networking opportunity for local businesses, government and community leaders.
“The whole premise of the Expo is to instill pride in the many assets we have in the local community, as well as to instill hope for the future,” said Peggy White, the Chamber’s executive director.
Several organizations scheduled to be at the Expo that White mentioned in regards to instilling hope in the future include the Virginia First Authority Commerce Park, which she said offers opportunities for business growth in the area, the New River Valley Competitiveness Center, the NRV Small Business Development Center, New River Community College Workforce Development, Builderscrete, which is a “green” business, and representatives from the Pulaski County Public School system and the Youth Excel Program, among many others.
Other local assets which White said “contribute to our quality of life in various ways," such as the Pulaski Theatre, Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, Pulaski County Public Library System, the
NRV Fair and the Fiddle, Banjo and Dance Club, along with recreational amenities, such as Randolph Park, Claytor Lake, the Shelor Motor Mile and Pulaski Baseball, Inc., will be represented at the Expo.
White also commented that she has noticed a definite “trend towards small businesses” in the local community, and many of those small businesses will be represented at the Expo.
She added that for those who might be looking to “take a jump” and start their own small business, the Business Expo poses an excellent opportunity for them to talk and network with people in the local area who have already taken that same jump by starting their own business.
