To get North Carolina moving forward again, we cannot look longingly to our past. We must plan for the future.

North Carolina's transformation into a fast-growing, dynamic, and much-envied state was no accident.  Smart, forward-thinking leaders from both the public and private sectors worked with engaged citizens to build the modern North Carolina.  Our leaders and citizens saw the wisdom and value of investing in our people and strengthening our communities, and that investment yielded great results.
