Newsmakers Breakfast Feb. 23 features chairman of Cornelius Arts Center


Greg Wessling, the chairman of the board of directors for the Cornelius Arts and Community Center, a non-profit that will run the proposed Cornelius Arts Center, will be the speaker at the Business Today Newsmakers Breakfast Feb. 23 at The Peninsula Club.

A nationwide search for an executive director is under way. The executive director will help with the fundraising process, and lead the multimillion-dollar arts center independently from the town. The town has paid $1.495 million for land in downtown Cornelius for the new arts center, funds for which were approved by voters in 2013. The $20.4 million bond package included $4 million for town center redevelopment, not including the land.

Newsmakers Breakfasts are an open-forum Q&As with people who make the news. Anyone can ask a question.

Doors open at 7:15 a.m. for networking. The buffet-style breakfast gets under way at 7:30 a.m. The Q&A begins at 8 a.m. and concludes at 9 a.m. The cost to attend, $12, includes a full country breakfast. Reserve a seat at 704-895-1335 with Visa or MasterCard.
