The Clayton Chamber of Commerce (CCOC) Economic Development Committee's vision and action plan rollout with the Town of Clayton at our quarterly Eggs & Issues event was packed with people and important information and initiatives.
Working collaboratively with the Town of Clayton on its place branding expansion efforts (including a call for district sub-branding) and supporting the Johnston Community College goal of establishing a Clayton Campus (to foster a pipeline of talent across all sectors for the emerging workforce needs in the area) were just a few highlights from the action plan shared during the event.
Town of Clayton Economic and Community Development Director Dave DeYoung also provided the following eye-opening stats during the event:

CCOC attended the Triangle Commercial Association of Realtors (TCAR) Lunch & Learn on Friday, June 22, 2018 to learn about and tour the new Raleigh Union Station. The beautiful station incorporates retail and office space, as well as thoughtfully-designated spaces for both the tourist and business traveler.
The potential to connect Clayton to Raleigh is extremely important to CCOC and something we address inside our Impact Agenda.
