Chamber to announce new development alliance

The Fayetteville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce is preparing to announce some big changes in its role in economic development.

A new, autonomous board will lead the job-creating efforts in this community. It's name is the Economic Development Alliance of Fayetteville and Cumberland County, North Carolina - or the Alliance, for short - led by outgoing chamber board Chairman Chris Bostock of Merrill Lynch.

The chamber still has policy-making and fiduciary responsibilities for economic development, but the Alliance will be similar to a separate division of the organization, said chamber President Doug Peters.

At the same time, the chamber will return to its traditional roots. More here.
