Chatham Economic Development Corporation's 9th annual Opportunity Chatham meeting, presented by Mosaic at Chatham Park & Triangle Community Foundation, was Friday, October 20, 2017 at the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center in Pittsboro.
We were pleased to welcome keynote speaker Dr. Michael Walden, a William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor and Extension Economist at North Carolina State University and a member of the Graduate Economics faculty with The Poole College of Management, who talked about regional and state economic trends.
