Obion County Chamber News

Union City Rotary ClubCongratulations to the newest members of the Union City Rotary Club! Our CEO, Lindsay Frilling was recently inducted.

Obion Chamber Membership Director Completes  UT Economic Development CourseLauren Tanner, membership director for the Obion County Chamber of Commerce, was one of 47 economic development professionals from Tennessee and five other states to graduate from the 11th annual Tennessee Basic Economic Development Course (TBEDC) on May 11 in Nashville. This week-long course is one of 10 courses offered by the Center for Industrial Services (CIS), an agency of the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service (IPS), and is considered the cornerstone of the Tennessee Certified Economic Developer (TCED) professional certification program. The course also is accredited by the International Economic Development Council.

Attendees learned best practices in economic and community development, new methods and programs to promote job growth and investment, and discussed emerging trends and factors that shape local and regional economies. This year's diverse class had a range of participants that included chamber of commerce and economic and community development organization professionals, elected and appointed officials, state government agency staff, community planners and business leaders.

Business Matters Thank you to Adult Leadership Obion County for sponsoring and providing our programming for June! Several class members spoke on behalf of the program and the positive experiences they have had. ALOC is a 9 month long program that meets once a month. Each monthly session explores a different aspect of Obion County. From agriculture and arts & entertainment all the way to law enforcement and legislative day, you will learn everything about the place you call home.
