North Carolina Business Organization Honors CBC President & CEO

CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon is congratulated on receiving NCCBI’s Citation for Distinguished Citizenship.

North Carolina Citizens for Business and Industry (NCCBI) presented one of its two highest honors to CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon during the organization’s Annual Meeting on Wednesday, March 20, 2002. Goodmon received the NCCBI Citation for Distinguished Citizenship at the day’s luncheon at the Raleigh Convention & Conference Center.

NCCBI cited Goodmon as “one of the Triangle’s hardest working community activists” in bestowing the Citation on him. Former Raleigh Mayor and NCCBI Chairman Emeritus Smedes York made the presentation. Governor Mike Easley congratulated Goodmon from the podium as well.

Several CBC VP’s attended the luncheon along with Goodmon.

NC Governor Mike Easley offered his thanks to Goodmon.

“We are very pleased to honor two of North Carolina’s finest citizens with these awards because I know, as so many other people know, that our state is a much better place today because of what they have contributed over the years,” said NCCBI President Phil Kirk of Goodmon and Citation for Distinguished Public Service recipient Russell Robinson. “One thing they have in common is their commitment to the hard, often unglamorous work of improving our communities.”

Goodmon received one of the two highest honors bestowed by NCCBI.

NCCBI has bestowed the Citation for Distinguished Citizenship annually since 1963 to honor an individual’s life of service to the state and their community. The luncheon was part of a daylong event for NCCBI’s 60th Annual Meeting.
