Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Big Week in Charlotte

May 10th, 2010 Listed Under: Living Here

NasCAR HALL OF fAMECharlotte welcomes race fans to the new NASCAR Hall of Fame,

opening Tuesday, May 11th, just  a few weeks before Charlotte Motor Speedway’s biggest race event of the year, Memorial Day’s Coca-Cola 600.  The museum and office building is expected to attract  more than 600,000 visitors per year.

Charlotte welcomes The NRA this weekend, as their annual convention  unfolds at the Charlotte Convention Center  Friday.

Alive at 5 is back at the Epicenter, Thursday evenings.

On top of the recent positive numbers in national job growth, Charlotte unemployment went down from 12.8% to 11.9%, a hefty one month drop, still with a long ways to go for a city used to being below the national unemployment averages.

Anecdotaly, I’ve a client who is a mid-level finance  manager, who came to Charlotte looking for work in the finance industry about 60 days ago. As of Saturday, she had 5 job offers.  Congratulations to Paulette and congratulations to the Denneberg’s! Good news, but I like to see more numbers from the city!
