On behalf of the Franklin Southampton Economic Development Board of Directors, we warmly invite you to our upcoming Partners in Progress event on Tuesday, March 12, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the Main Event in downtown Franklin. This year’s event will focus on the economic change within the agriculture industry.

The keynote speaker will be Bettina Ring, Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry. Secretary Ring will share impactful remarks surrounding future economic agriculture and forestry initiatives, as well as how existing industry sectors can partner with the two regional economic drivers.

This collaborative forum serves to educate and inform our community at large about key economic development issues both throughout the Commonwealth and in the Franklin Southampton locality. We eagerly expect a wonderful event of networking and sharing of local economy information.

Tickets are $10 and include a catered breakfast.

To RSVP, please contact Ashley Cotton at or 562-1958.
