I would like to publicly applaud The Island Packet for its advocacy on behalf of the hospitality industry with this series of articles. Far too long has economic development in our region been skewed towards dead end investment. Tourism and hospitality are viable avenues to create stability in the long term, while other industries have a tendency to lag. The strength of our region's efforts in this regard is very much determinate on building resources...human performance, infrastructure, capital projects, education (at all levels: high school, certificate programs, technical college and 4yr). The voices of those working to fulfill every imaginable service have consistently remained absent and should be considered necessary. Bolstering the industry with resources won't remain viable without active representation or advocacy from the workforce itself. That is, the voices of those that serve on the front line sitting at the table to lend experience when visioning the island's future.    #tourism   #hospitality   #HHI   #HiltonHead   #SouthCarolina  
Three ways Hilton Head Island leaders and employers must help the workers who are propping up paradise.

Irony in infrastructure. As the mayor of Palo Alto pushes tech out, communities like Beaufort and Charleston, South Carolina are opening their arms wide.

There was passion for a region and its music so a festival was produced so that people from everywhere could hear the melody. Then a museum was built to recognize the music and a place called Bristol, TN/VA as the birthplace of country music. And the momentum continues to grow!
