The Statesville Chamber of Commerce helped NC State’s Institute for Emerging Issues kick off its summer “FutureWork Prosperity Tour” yesterday.
Statesville Chamber President David Bradley says the focus is to discuss what jobs will be affected by future advances in technology and automation.
Part of yesterday’s event included meeting with Youth Leadership students at Statesville High School.
The bus tour will travel to eight regions.
Organizers plan to engage local students, colleges and businesses to share regional-specific data while also seeking input on the issue.
