Today, the Clayton Chamber of Commerce (CCOC) received a Communication Excellence Award from the Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives for The Clayton Connection App.
The app concept, name, and branding were developed by CCOC staff to emphasize community connectivity. The app utilizes Guidebook, Inc.’s platform which allows multiple entities and/or special events to live inside one app. Currently, The Clayton Connection App includes guidebooks for the Clayton Rotary Christmas Parade (updated annually), the CCOC Business Directory and Events, Clayton Harvest Festival (updated annually), and the recent North Carolina Main Street Conference event hosted by Downtown Clayton, NC. Additional guidebooks are in the process of being added to the app, making it a must-have for all Clayton, NC residents. CCOC plans to incorporate The Clayton Connection App into its newly-created newcomer tours beginning late 2018.
The Communication Excellence Award was presented to President/CEO Dana Wooten during the 2018 Leadership Development Conference (April 25-27, 2018) in Hilton Head Island, SC.
