Beginning at 7 a.m., the program will consist of six panel discussions on topics ranging from crime and traffic to economic strengths and challenges and health care in Eastern North Carolina.
Each panel will be comprised of 3-4 experts on the subject being discussed. The format entails a 30-minute discussion of each issue on the agenda followed by an open mike period for members of the community to weigh in with their thoughts.
Massey, who has served as PCC president since 2003, has agreed to participate in the “Town and Gown” discussion at 9 a.m. He is scheduled to be joined by East Carolina University administrators and Greenville city officials to talk about Greenville’s college town dynamic and the challenges that come with it.
The six-hour summit will run from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Each discussion will be aired live in on 103.7 WTIB and videotaped for playback on Greenville’s Cable Channel 7.
