Chamber Encourages Local Governments, Authorities Participation

As a means of creating a county-wide dialog, The Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce has sent hundreds of cards and letters to local governments and authorities, encouraging their participation in Coweta’s first-ever economic summit, Wednesday, October 22, 8:30 a.m. until 12 noon, at the Coweta County Centre for Performing Arts, Lower Fayetteville Rd., Newnan.

Policom Corporation, a Florida-based independent economic research firm, will present its findings after spending the last several months collecting data and analyzing the state of Coweta County’s economy. The event is open to the public, and admission is free.

According to Chamber President Phil Aaron, “It’s been more than ten years since we took an in-depth look at Coweta’s economy. I believe everyone will agree that much has changed in our community since then. The information Policom presents will not only be a valuable tool for local business owners, but also for elected and appointed officials as they plan for our future.” He adds, “We are very fortunate and appreciative that our local utility companies recognized the need for this informational dialog, and have all come together to share the full cost of the study.”

The 2008 Coweta Economic Summit is sponsored by AT&T, Atlanta Gas light, Coweta-Fayette EMC, Georgia Power Company, and Newnan Utilities. For information, contact the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce at 770-253-2270.
