The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new five-year strategy for growth for the county at its August 29 luncheon. ShelbyOne, which began in task force meetings a year ago, aims to help Shelby County grow to be the best it can be as a leader in its region.
The strategy is divided into four parts: support for existing businesses and development in new business sectors; community development including training for current and future leaders; government relationship strategy; and marketing and communications.
At the meeting, County Commissioner Alex Dudchock emphasized that ShelbyOne is a collaborative effort and encouraged local business owners to get involved.
As of the luncheon date, ShelbyOne has garnered $1.05 million in pledges toward its $1.7 million goal.
