Siler City, NC – On Thursday, January 29, the Chatham Economic Development Corporation (EDC) will host a joint meeting with the Chatham County Board of Commissioners, the town boards of Goldston, Pittsboro, and Siler City, and the Board of Education to discuss effective models of career and technical education.

In September, the University of North Carolina’s Center for International Understanding hosted a Global Leaders to Germany program to provide North Carolina representatives an opportunity to learn first-hand about the German system of supporting manufacturing. The Institute for Emerging Issues sponsored a Chatham County team to attend: Dianne Reid, President of Chatham EDC, Renee Paschal, Assistant County Manager and Dr. Pamela Senegal, Vice President of Economic and Community Development for Central Carolina Community College.

Dianne Reid and Renee Paschal will talk about what they learned from German models of apprenticeships and dual education, and how Chatham County can implement similar strategies in local career and technical education programs.

The public event is at 7 p.m. at Bestfood Cafeteria in Siler City (220 East 11th St.). Guests are invited to arrive at 6 p.m. for a Dutch treat dinner.For more information, contact the EDC at 919-542-8274.
