“Zeb Weaver, of Convergent Nonprofit Solutions, who is spearheading the fundraising drive for the Rutherford County Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDC), was introduced at the board’s meeting Wednesday morning.

‘The first few months of the campaign will be slow. We want to be very strategic,’ Weaver said. ‘But there is a method to the madness. It is a slow process. It takes time before the first pledges come through.’

He noted that all campaigns are different.

‘We want to figure out what will work best for this community,’ he said.”
