Rural Commerce Outreach Initiative 2014
The Rural Commerce Outreach Initiative was developed out of the Southwest Georgia Stronger Economies Together (SET) Training that was provided through Fort Valley State University Extension Agency and the United States Department of Agriculture. The SET training opportunity allowed nineteen counties in Southwest Georgia to work toward a singular goal to help small business, agribusiness, and nonprofits grow stronger.

The event has confirmed Georgia Secretary of Agriculture Gary Black and US House District 2 Congressman Sanford Bishop as speakers. There are several breakout opportunities that will include: Agri-Women in the South, Helping Small Business Owners win Loans, Tax Strategies for the Small Business, Make the Web Work for you Through Social Media, FarmCredit/Farm Loans and many more. For more information please go online to www.swgastrong.org for a full list of speakers and times.

Our Chamber Committees In Action
Tourism Committee

The Tourism Committee has been hard at work this quarter!! A Tourism Window Cling, New Community Magazine, and Pictures for Georgia Camera Ready!

A Tourism Window Cling (graphic designed by Sylvester Computer Guy) is now being displayed at the Georgia Visitors Center in Lake Park, highlighting our area to travellers passing through the Georgia/Florida border area. A smaller version of the cling is available for free to our Chamber members, so swing by the Chamber office and get yours!

Keeping a cohesive branding strategy, the Tourism Window Cling's graphic was also featured on the cover of the new Chamber Community Magazine, which will be handed out at our Annual Business After Hours Event this Thursday, May 1st.

Also recently completed, our new Stop and Shop Sylvester-Worth County Fans are now freely available to the general public, and will likewise be handed out at the Annual Business After Hours Event.

Lastly, we asked the Sylvester Computer Guy, to take some shots of the Sumner Gym for inclusion in the Georgia Camera Ready database, which puts it on a list of possible venues for an upcoming basketball film. Sylvester Computer Guy's Mr. Joshua Beckstrom is also our Chair for the Tourism Committee. AWESOME Photography!! Good Luck Sumner!
