Investors and Community Partners

The safety, health and well-being of our community is of utmost importance during this especially challenging time. We all can play an important role in slowing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and hopefully limiting the impact on regional business functions.

While the current health crisis has temporarily changed the way we do business, our commitment to collaboration and promotion for the advancement of the Charlotte Region remains as strong as ever. We are a resilient region with a shared dream of prosperity for all.

As COVID-related stay at home orders continue to evolve, we will modify our events using digital technology, postpone some programs or cancel meetings in accordance with public health directives. We know you value the CLT Alliance’s services, and we greatly appreciate your patience as we actively explore how to best meet your needs while also heeding current health protocols.

Several ways we plan to continue programming and services in the coming weeks are:

  • Live streaming of events
  • Webinars
  • Live Chats
  • Podcasts
  • Creating LinkedIn groups for specific events, and serve as a forum for industry specific groups
  • Employing social media to provide critical updates or investor insights

For now, the weekly Monday calendar email will be replaced with key updates and pertinent information in our CLT Alliance Digest broadcast email. If you would like to receive this email, sign up here and check to CLT Alliance Digest box.

Never has the CLT Alliance’s vision statement been truer than now:

With united vision and bold action, we will create the most vibrant, innovative and healthy economy in the nation.

Thank you for taking measures to ensure the health of community remains a priority.
