First session in “TVC Virtual Summit Series” is just days away

As noted in today’s feature article with Third District U.S. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, the first of five weekly sessions under the “TVC Virtual Summit Series” starts in three days (Thursday, July 16).

Thursday’s sub-theme is “The Appalachian Highlands Meeting the Challenge.” Featured speakers for the 90-minute session that begins at 1 p.m. EDT include:

  • First District U.S. Congressman Phil Roe who is retiring after the election;
  • Tim Thomas, Federal Co-Chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission;
  • U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander who is also retiring this year; and
