Grisbi Day in the Rhône-Gard: initiatives focused on business and solidarity

The group of companies in the area met on Tuesday, May 10, elected economic actors, consular representatives to discuss the Buy Local Charter and Solidarity with Disabilities.

Next Thursday, June 16, date of the general meeting of Grisbi, he will leave the chairmanship of this group of entrepreneurs from the Gard Rhône. Vincent Champetier is letting go of the reins of the association after four years at the helm. And no doubt with the sense of accomplishment.

Indeed, the nearly five-year term of the outgoing future will be marked by multiple and equally daring initiatives, both economic in nature and solidarity-oriented. For example, Grisbi has carried out 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 the Esat de la Chartreuse de Valbonne in Saint-Paulet-de-Caisson and the Foyer Marie Durand in Laudun-l’Ardoise. These donations represent a Grisbi-funded investment of just over $4,400. “Thanks to Your Generosity” welcomed the president of Grisbi and addressed his colleagues.

See you Tuesday 17 May

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

This Tuesday, May 10, 2022, around an extraordinary plenary session and lunch, the Governing Council brought together more than 185 guests, elected officials, economic actors and representatives of consular chambers, including Éric Giraudier, President of the Chamber of Commerce, and industry. of the Gard. “It is important to join forces in the territory,” he stated before handing over a check to Grisbi’s president, the amount of which was not disclosed.

The group with the bear logo has chosen the rural setting of the 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, lecturer-researcher, brought together 90 assistants.

Gypsy King on the poster for 10 years

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

A message was received by five of the five local officials elected, including the president of the Agglo Jean-Christian Rey. He nevertheless recalls that public procurement regulations were highly regulated. Favoring a company just because of its location in the territory can be considered illegal. It is therefore necessary to inform economic actors of the existing restrictions. And also to make them aware of the fact “that there are tenders for public contracts that are not successful”

So many topics that will be covered at the investment evening that will be organized on Thursday 2 June, probably in Saint-Gervais. That evening we will present more than 30 M€ in potential investments of the Agglo announces Jean-Christian Rey. The elected official believes that proceeding in this way is completely legal, as the presentation to be held that evening will be available to view 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 the Agglo in charge of the economy, Sébastien Bayart, are working on the integration of 16 to 25-year-olds with basic education. “We can offer you the profiles you are looking for” launched the president of the Agglo for entrepreneurs. Grisbi relies on the lever of learning to solve the labor needs of businesses 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 aimed at companies looking to hire interns this summer.
