Columbus Chamber of Commerce unveils new Business First plan

(WTVM) -

The Columbus Chamber of Commerce has unveiled a new plan with the goal of expanding business in the area. The plan is called Business First.   

The group will assist local companies in achieving goals through retention and expansion. 

Chamber members say they want to hear first-hand about problems businesses face, so they can help identify solutions.

Russ Carreker, Chair of Economic Development, says, "Often times, we didn't have the right people or the right resources to solve those problems. The Chamber can collectively help us do that. And so we're going out and trying to find what are the things that are hindering any company from being all that they can be, and seeing if we can help provide some of the answers to those problems."

Chamber of Commerce leaders hope Business First will strengthen relationships within the community and offer more opportunities for growth and jobs.
