Scott Tigchelaar, President, Riverwood Studios Featured Speaker at Chamber's Early Bird Forum

The Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce will feature Scott Tigchelaar, President of Riverwood Studios, at its upcoming Prosperity Happens Here Series Early Bird Forum on Tuesday, July 22 at 7:45 a.m. at the Central Educational Center. This month’s emcee is Rod Griffith with Griffith Financial Group. Admittance to the Forum is $15 for Chamber members and $20 for nonmembers and includes breakfast. There is a networking time from 7 – 7:30am.

Scott Tigchelaar and Riverwood Studios have played two lead roles for Coweta County. For starters, Riverwood offers state-of-the-art production facilities in Senoia to attract Georgia’s growing film industry. But an added attraction is Riverwood’s involvement in their role of Historic Development Ventures (affiliated with Riverwood Studios) in preserving and revitalizing downtown Senoia as both a vibrant 21st Century town center and an authentic early 20th century movie set. Riverwood offers a great example of how modern technology and historic preservation add up to economic prosperity, which earned them a 2008 Prosperity Award from the Chamber.

The Early Bird Forum is a monthly Chamber event that provides networking opportunities and eye-opening information from business leaders throughout Coweta County. To RSVP, contact the Chamber at 770-253-2270 or info@newnancowetachamber.org. The deadline to make a reservation is Friday, July 18th by 5pm.
