What’s Next, Chambers County?
March 21 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Third Forum: How Do We Get There?
Okay, two down and one to go. There is still time for your voice to be heard March 21st. For background, a lively group of your neighbors, elected and appointed officials, and community leaders met March 14th at Southern Union State Community College – Valley Campus (SUSCC) to improve our quality of life in Chambers County. Chambers Extension, SUSCC, and the David Mathews Center for Civic Life (DMC) convened the second of three “What’s Next, Chambers?” forums in which participants gathered and discussed our community’s economic past, present, and future.
While the forum series is centered loosely on topics of economic and workforce development, each community is able to define the topic in ways that make it relevant for them locally. Any issue that affects a community’s quality of life is fair game for discussion. “What’s Next, Chambers?” encourages us to reflect on the assets we already have in order to leverage these assets to address local challenges, before making a plan for action.
The first forum (March 7th, 2017) asked, “Where are we now? What assets do we have in our community? What is working and what isn’t working?” We had a GREAT discussion. Recorded notes from the first forum are available here.
The second forum (March 14th, 2017) asked, “Where do we want to go? What do we want to change about our community? What do we want to preserve?” Recorded notes from the second forum are available here.
You’re likely thinking, “So, where do I fit in?” Well, that’s a great question! You have one more chance! Our third and final forum will ask: “How do we get there? How can we move from talk to action?”
There is no cost to attend. The DMC is graciously providing lunch. Please RSVP to Robin Brown no later than March 17, 2017 so we can purchase sufficient meals and plan the forum meeting space.

All times are EASTERN, and the forum will take place in the Technology Building at SUSCC.
