“The summit is open to anyone in Stone County who is interested in learning more about current best practices in economic development,” said Sheila Thomas, President/CEO of the Table Rock Lake Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber formed Table Rock Regional Partnership several years ago to begin working on issues affecting economic development in Stone County. This summit is a step forward in addressing some of those issues and provides individuals with a voice in how Stone County moves forward.”
The Chamber received a $5,000 micro-grant this spring from the Ozark Region Workforce Development Board to assist in funding the Stone County Economic Development Summit.
