Carroll addressed the four priorities Gov. Beverly Perdue has set for the state. Those priorities include: 1) Keeping communities safe by addressing the way the state manages parole/probation and safety in the schools; 2) setting government straight by tightening its financial belt; 3) emphasizing jobs and the economy in the midst of the worldwide recession; and 4) reducing the student dropout rates. Carroll emphasized the fact that Perdue is the first governor to have actual classroom teaching experience and that the experience gives her a unique ability to identify with local teachers. Carroll said that the evening's events had given him a shot in the arm and thanked the audience for its commitment to helping the local community. The 2008 Citizen of the Year, Bennett H. Perry Jr., presented the 2009 Citizen of the Year Award to Daily Dispatch publisher James Edwards. Edwards is a Henderson and Vance County native who is deeply involved with numerous non-profit organizations in the community.

ACSI Member 12 THE DAILY DISPATCH BUSINESS OUTLOOK WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2010 Henderson Community Appearance Chamber increases efforts to go green Commission and Vance Co. Appearance Commission seek assistance The Henderson Community Appearance Commission and the Vance County Appearance Commission are joining together again this year to plan a Spring Litter Sweep Cleanup Day for Henderson and Vance County on April 24. The commissions are seeking individuals, businesses and organizations to be a part of this community effort! "The cleanup day is an ideal way for individuals, businesses and organizations to get involved in improving the appearance of our community and making a real difference in a day's time," said Jane Rush, co-Chairperson of the Henderson Community Appearance Commission. During the designated day, groups will come together to help clean up trash and debris from areas they designate as needing attention or in areas the appearance commissions have identified for cleanup in Henderson and the surrounding communities in the county. The day offers a great way for church groups, especially youth groups, to clean up along streets or roads in the neighborhoods surrounding their churches or in any another area. Businesses, school groups, civic organizations and community watch groups can do the same! For more information on the effort, contact Jane Rush at (252) 492-2127, ext. 2100. The Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce is stepping up its efforts to go green. Because the Chamber represents the interests of a diverse array of businesses in its membership, the organization felt that setting an example of better environmental responsibility should be a priority. As a result of those efforts, the Chamber began offering the "Focus" newsletter to its members in electronic form last year. Over 115 members have opted to receive the electronic version instead of the mailed version, allowing the Chamber staff to save printing costs, postage and real-time labor costs. The Chamber's Marketing Committee has set a goal of August to convert as many members as possible to only the electronic version of the "Focus" newsletter. In order to receive a mailed copy of the newsletter, businesses must notify the Chamber no later than Aug. 1 either by phone at (252) 438-8414 or by e-mail at info@ hendersonvance.org. In addition, invitations to Business After Hours sponsored by Chamber members will be sent in most cases via e-mail only. This will allow the Chamber to offer this service to sponsoring members for free instead of charging a $350 optional fee per event if the sponsor desires a mailing. Because of these and other changes to come, it is extremely important that all Chamber member information, including e-mail addresses, be current and upto-date. The Chamber staff asks that members make the Chamber a priority when updating any changes in contact information for their companies. The Chamber's Web site continues to increase in the number of hits to its online membership directory, so failure to notify the Chamber of new contact information could result in a loss of business for Chamber members. To update information, contact the Chamber staff at info@hendersonvance. org or at (252) 438-8414.
