Our Upstate Vision Drivers

In 2011, Ten at the Top unveiled the Our Upstate Vision, which was the final result of a year-long conversation in which more than 10,000 Upstate residents contributed ideas and input on “What Matters Most” as we look toward the future of the region. One component of the vision was the identification of five “Regional Drivers” which now serve as the core focus areas for the work of Ten at the Top and its committees and task forces.
