Economic Impact Study Presentation: March 12 @ 11am

Post by RRGCC » Tue Mar 08, 2016 1:11 pm

Remember those online and in-person surveys you filled out last year? Come hear what the results were and discuss climbers' impact on the local economy! We hope to see you in the Natural Bridge State Lodge's Magnolia Room at 11am this Saturday, March 12th! We'll be serving coffee, orange juice, and pie charts. :)

Yes - we should have something on the new website shortly afterwards :-)

thanks for the link mourz.

I wonder what the average pay is for one of the coal jobs? the 102 million at 1231 positions is about $83,400, or maybe what tax revenue is brought in through the 936 million said to be generated?
training is for people who care, i have a job.
