Pig Day at Rhone Gard: initiatives focusing on business and solidarity

The group of companies in the territory on Tuesday, May 10, gathered elected economic actors, consular representatives to talk about the local Buy charter and solidarity with the disabled.

Next Thursday, June 16, the date of Grisbi’s general meeting, he will leave the presidency of this group of entrepreneurs from Gard Rhône. Vincent Champetier is releasing the reins of the association after four years at the helm. And no doubt with the feeling of achievement.

The almost five-year period for the outgoing future will indeed have been marked by numerous and equally daring initiatives, whether economic in nature or aimed at solidarity. Grisbi, for example, has implemented actions aimed at digital access for people with disabilities. Two IMEs – medico-social institutes – Violettes in Bagnols-sur-Cèze and Barandonne in Pont-Saint-Esprit each received four digital tablets.

Ditto for Esat de la Chartreuse de Valbonne in Saint-Paulet-de-Caisson and Foyer Marie Durand in Laudun-l’Ardoise. These donations represent an investment of just over € 4,400 financed by Grisbi. “It’s thanks to your generosity” welcomed the President of Grisbi and spoke to his peers.

See you on Tuesday 17 May

On Tuesday 17 May, business leaders and the world of disability will meet from 8.30 in Piscin’Eauccitane (to be confirmed) on the road from Saint-Gervais to Bagnols-sur-Cèze for sports activities and a lunch at the end of kl. in the morning. Of course, Grisbi’s core business remains business.

This Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the Board of Directors gathered around an extraordinary plenary session and a lunch more than 185 guests, elected representatives, economic actors and representatives of consular chambers, including Éric Giraudier, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce. and the industry of Gard. “It is important to gather energies in the territory,” he declared, before handing over a check, the amount of which was not disclosed, to the president of Grisbi.

The group with the logo in the shape of a bear has chosen the bucolic setting for Mas de So Laudun-l’Ardoise for this day called Grisbi Day. The event welcomed 40 exhibitors, 60 visitors and 25 municipalities represented. In the evening, the lecture by Olivier Torres, teacher-researcher, gathered 90 assistants.

Gypsy king on the poster for 10 years

As for Grisbi’s 10-year anniversary concert with Gipsy King on the bill, it attracted 150 people. “It’s the anniversary of the Buy Local charter,” Vincent Champetier said. “Five years ago, the idea was born out of the need to educate elected officials about the importance of buying Local.”

A message received five out of five by local elected officials, including Agglo president Jean-Christian Rey. He nevertheless reminded that the rules for awarding public contracts were heavily regulated. Privilege of a company solely because of its location in the territory can be considered illegal. It is therefore necessary to inform economic operators of the existing constraints. And also to make them aware of the fact “that there are tenders for public contracts which remain unsuccessful”.

So many topics that will be discussed at the investment evening held on Thursday 2 June, probably in Saint-Gervais. That evening, we will present more than € 30 million of potential investments that Agglo is carrying announces Jean-Christian Rey. The elected representative believes that it is perfectly legal to proceed in this way, as the presentation that will be made that evening will be available in its entirety on the Internet.

The lever of learning

The Local Youth Mission and its director Frédéric Combernous as well as the vice president of Agglo in charge of the economy Sébastien Bayart are working to integrate 16- to 25-year-olds who have the prerequisites. “We are able to offer you the profiles you are looking for” launched the president of Agglo to entrepreneurs. Grisbi is dependent on the learning lever to find a solution to the labor needs of companies in the area.

An information meeting on this topic will be held on Tuesday 24 May between 12.00 and 14.00 at 16.30 Training in Bagnols-sur-Cèze. It is intended for companies that plan to hire apprentices for the summer.
