Upcoming Friday Programs

All meetings will be postponed until after April 10, 2020.

The East Tennessee Economic Council’s leadership, with an abundance of caution during this public health situation, have agreed to postpone and reschedule the Friday morning ETEC meetings for the next month, until after April 10.

As always, the safety and health of our members and employees, are our greatest concerns. We plan to closely monitor the situation and update you weekly regarding the status of other scheduled meetings and events.
