Do you know the economic impact in your community?



I was honored to serve as facilitator of the Thomasville & Thomas County Economic Impact 2018 event. This was a change-up for the Chamber of Commerce as they usually host a different type of economic development event each year. In the past the event has not contained as much local and relevant content as desired, so this year made all the difference!

Panelists were:
Shelley Zorn, local Economic Developer
April Norton, Main Street Director
Bonnie Hayes, Tourism Director
Julie Bryan, KeySouth Real Estate Group
Ty Turner, Synovus Bank
Brian Weibler, Tall Timbers Research Station

As you might expect, each panelist was asked to answer questions directly related to their expertise and industry.

Overall, the Thomasville community's economic development outlook is good, BUT there must be action to overcome the surprising number of non-working adults in the community and the need for median priced real estate for rentals and ownership.

I thoroughly enjoyed being involved in this event and learned a lot. My recommendation to everyone is to be engaged as much as you can in your local community. It's good for all.
