MEC Pathway to Progress Tour – Nov 7, 2013 – February 27, 2014

The MEC Pathway to Progress Tour will be held in 19 cities across Mississippi, beginning in Corinth on Nov. 7 and ending in Gautier on February 27, 2014.

Mississippi continues its progress in becoming one of the most competitive states for doing business. MEC will seek the input of business and community leaders to help our state’s business climate become even stronger. This tour is a great opportunity to network with fellow business leaders from across the state.

Please join us at a tour stop near you as we seek to implement the Blueprint Mississippi Goals and Recommendations.

Each session will be 90 minutes long, including networking, and will include breakfast or lunch.  There is no cost to attend thanks to a generous sponsorship from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. The event is open to the public, however, pre-registration is required. Visit to register.
