Siler City, NC - The Chatham County Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) will host its annual meeting, Opportunity Chatham, at 7:30 am on May 12, 2009, at the Joan Fabrics Building at 1311 E. Eleventh Street (Highway 64) in Siler City. Tickets are on sale for $25 per person and $185 for each table of eight. Business sponsorships are also available.

Opportunity Chatham will focus on the positive things that Chatham County has to offer businesses, according to Dianne Reid, president of the CEDC. “We will use the event to showcase our excellent strategic location midway between the Piedmont Triad and the Research Triangle, to focus on our many available sites and buildings, to highlight our available workforce, to demonstrate our exceptional quality of place.”

Opportunity Chatham will feature North Carolina’s new Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco discussing the future of the state’s job creation efforts and positioning North Carolina for economic recovery. In addition, the event will provide a snapshot of the local economy and also will establish benchmark standards for evaluating future success in implementing Chatham County’s strategic economic development plan.

The Abundance Foundation, a local non-profit, will handle event preparations. Event and ticket information can be found on their website.
