The Central Chamber Report

By  | 

Board Swearing Inb    Last Wednesday, January 13, the Central Chamber held its January Monthly Investors’ Luncheon and what a jam packed meeting it was! The Central Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Executive Committee and Board of Directors were sworn into office by Central’s Justice of the Peace Mark Miley.  As an added bonus, board member and former councilman Aaron Moak was sworn into office as a new member of Planning and Zoning by Mr. Miley and Mayor Junior Shelton.  To wrap things up, Mayor Junior Shelton addressed the Central Chamber Investors on the State of the City of Central.  It was insightful to hear about all of the different projects taking place in Central. From road projects to housing developments, the economic future is looking great for Central.
    Throughout the year we will continue to bring a variety of speakers to our Monthly Investors’ Luncheons.  You can be a part of these informative luncheons as well.  To find out how, contact the Central Chamber at 261-5818.
