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.

Business After Hours - June 2017 We had a wonderful Business After Hours at Discovery Park of America celebrating their newest traveling exhibit! We had a wonderful turnout and encourage everyone to take advantage of it until September!

"Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones is a traveling exhibition organized by the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville, Tennessee. The exhibition project was made possible through an educational grant from the Alcoa Foundation to highlight Tennessee's manufacturing story - past, present, and future. The grant was awarded in honor of Alcoa Tennessee Operations 100th Anniversary and the announcement of its automotive expansion project on May 2, 2013. Additional support comes from the Tennessee Valley Authority. Made in Obion County Exhibit is in addition to the Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones. Guests can learn about the local impact that industries had and continue to have in this area. Discovery Park of America is adding a section dedicated to the manufacturers in Obion County, including: Blue Steel Tool, Inc.; KMI; Blue Steel Tool & Die; MIA Seating; Darling Ingredients; Premier Buildings; G & H Tool & Die; Reelfoot Metal; Green Plains; Titan Tire - Fleming Fabric & Wire; High Note Solutions; HTS Mixing; RPG Physical Testing Labs; Greenfield Products; Tyson; H & O Tool & Die; Waymatic; Jiffy Steamers; Williams Country Sausage"
