Upstate, SC– Ten at the Top, an organization created to foster collaboration, partnerships and strategic planning across the Upstate, will focus the fourth and final Our Upstate Vision Forum of 2013 on celebrating successes in the Upstate. The forum, which is free and open to the public, is being held from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at the Embassy Suites (670 Verdae Boulevard Greenville, SC 29607). A networking reception will immediately follow the forum.

    The overall theme for the 2013 Forum Series is “Destination 2030: Thinking BIG and BOLD About the Future of the Upstate.” Each forum will focus on a different topic and look at short, middle and long term opportunities that can help ensure that the Upstate in 2030 is universally recognized as a leader in that particular area. During this forum, we will celebrate the successes and great things happening in the Upstate.

    While it is critical to continue looking at areas where we must continue to work to make the Upstate an even better place for generations to come, it is also important that we take opportunities to recognize and understand some of the great things from our past and that are happening today in our region.

    The forum will also include recognition of companies and organizations celebrating milestone anniversaries (20 years or more) in 2013. Ten at the Top will announce the first recipients of the Elevate Upstate Grants. The five finalists will give a short presentation about their project and what it will do for the community they represent.

    The Our Upstate Vision Forum Series began in 2012 with TATT hosting four forums across the Upstate. The series continues in 2013 with BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina serving as the Series Premier Sponsor.

    There is no cost to attend the forum, but attendees are asked to register in advance at Registration deadline is November 18th. For more information contact Ten at the Top at 864.283.2313.
