Newnan-Coweta Chamber’s Second Industry Roundtable Targets Retail

The Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce is hosting a roundtable discussion for members of the County’s retail community. The roundtable discussion for larger retailers will be held on Thursday, March 27, from 3:00 -4:30 p.m. at the Chamber. The smaller retailers will meet on April 17, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at the Chamber. The roundtables will be facilitated discussions about the needs and challenges specific to large and small retailers in Coweta, the assets and opportunities that are available in our community, the ways in which retail establishments can become more integrated into overall quality of life in Coweta, and ways in which the Chamber of Commerce might be of greater assistance to retailers in the community.

This roundtable is the second in a series of industry-specific roundtables the Chamber is hosting in 2008. The first roundtable focused on the banking and financial services industry, and was attended by several representatives from the financial community. Other industry roundtables will include: hospitality (restaurant/hotel), real estate/development, manufacturing and healthcare. Dates for these roundtables will be available on the Chamber’s website ( or by calling or emailing the Chamber: 770-253-2270 or

“We developed this series of roundtables to help determine the specific needs and desires of Coweta’s major industry groups. In addition to exploring specific services that the Chamber might provide to each, we also hope to uncover some broader issues across the board that we might address together to improve the business environment for everyone,” said Vicki Kaiser, Piedmont Healthcare, and vice chair of the Marketing & Membership Value Committee at the Chamber.

The roundtable is open to Chamber members and nonmembers and is free of charge. Please RSVP to Valerie Ward, 770-253-2270 or
