Reconnect to Community: Sponsorship


The Institute for Emerging Issues recognizes that attending an Emerging Issues Forum is a barrier for some North Carolinians due to cost. We also know that every voice is important. It is imperative that all voices work together to bridge divides, and address their community’s challenges and opportunities.

As an organization committed to connecting North Carolinians across sectors, regions and perspectives for collaborative work on key emerging issues affecting our state’s future economic competitiveness, our top priority is to host an Emerging Issues Forum in Western North Carolina that is attended by a diverse representation of the region. You can help!
