MEC leaders will focus on economic development, job creation, business climate and transportation and infrastructure issues. The meeting will also discuss workforce success, healthy living and programs that make difference in the community.

Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce President Debbie Hudson said the chamber and Natchez Inc. team up to encourage MEC to visit the area each year.

“Those who attend like to be a part of the annual survey as well as learn about different concerns of the state,” Hudson said.
