We hope you had a good week, we had a busy one. It definitely feels as if the world is speeding up again with events and a more normal pace. The good news is this is coinciding with a continued drop in COVID cases. Numbers are looking good in regards to cases and with other metrics related to tourism and business. One number that is not stabilizing and only growing is the churn of employees quitting their job and businesses needing workers. This is evident in all types of sectors and sizes of businesses. We are doing our part to help with our Jobs Board and Member Press Releases on your programming and incentives you might be offering. Take advantage and let us know if there are other ways we can assist.
It was a busy week of events and openings! It was wonderful to join the Opera as they previewed their season at Opera on the Mountain. We look forward to returning and previewing a show in 2022 for our longtime member. TPAC is back and we attended the opening night of Broadway as it returned to Jackson Hall after being dark for 18 Months.
We finished the week with an incredible Brewing Up Business at the Turnip Truck on Charlotte Avenue. John Dyke, who has won our Business Leader of the Year and Small Business of the Year, is an LGBT certified business, and an EO Catalyst graduate and in the current class of Leadership Nashville; shared the wild journey he and his team took opening the Charlotte Ave store. From the tornado to COVID, it was not an easy process and it was great to finally celebrate them in such a wonderful space. The number of first-time attendees was also incredible. If you missed it we would love to see you at the next one.
