Jerry W. Moorefield, P.E. was selected as the Stokes County representative to serve on this newly formed group by the Piedmont Triad Partnership. The group consists of 33 members from the 12 county Piedmont Triad region. The counties are Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Montgomery, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin. The group participated in a week long leadership training session at The Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina in May 2008. The group was formed to develop ideas and to establish a leadership group that could more effectively promote the 12 county region. Three committees were formed from the group, the branding committee, vision committee, and the entrepreneurial & education committee. Projects were developed by each committee and work continues on putting our projects into action.
