Callaway Chamber of Commerce encouraging economic development

Callaway Chamber of Commerce executive director Tamara Tateosin visited Fulton Rotary Wednesday to give an update on economic developments.

A job fair will be happening on Nov. 9 at Callaway County Extended Employment from 12 to 6 p.m.

She said the chamber is also working with Missouri Job Center to make sure they are utilizing all the center's tools.

So far this year Tateosin said the chamber has worked on 15 industrial projects. Last year 25 projects were completed.

Some ways for economic development Tateosin discussed were supporting entrepreneurs and shopping local at businesses.

Encouraging people to go to events by businesses was another way to support and help businesses grow.

This year a first-year youth entrepreneurship program title The Local Lemon, through the Callaway Chamber of Commerce and the Missouri women's Business Center, taught ages 6 to 16 how to own and operate their own business over a six week period of time.

The program was a great opportunity to showcase entrepreneur-ism, she said.
