Things just keep getting worse for the state of NC over HB2.
Johnstone supply cancelled their 2018 fall meeting over HB2. The group stated that it's not in their best interest to hold their event in a state that's not inclusive.
Losing this conference in Raleigh increases the negative economic impact of HB2 even further. Scheduled for the Raleigh Marriott, the loss of this conference is an unfortunate side effect of the discriminatory bill.
"We are no longer looking to bring meetings to North Carolina in light of recent legislation."
- Janet Tipton, Director of Communications, Johnstone Supply
Losing the Johnstone Supply conference is just one of many recent losses for NC over HB2.
