GROW GREATER DALTON 2.0 INVESTMENT
CHAIR: David Gregg, Community & Southern Bank
The Greater Dalton Chamber’s Grow Greater Dalton 2.0 initiative is an economic development campaign aimed at strengthening the economy in Greater Dalton. It is focused on creating jobs, increasing capital investment and providing a prepared workforce for the Greater Dalton area.
In the past three years, business leaders in Dalton & Whitfield Co. have added over 2,500 new jobs, seen over $700 million in new capital invested and built an excellent economic development program. This economic development program has positioned our community for significant job growth and continued economic vitality in the years to come.
This program and its benefits came because of the financial support of private businesses in partnership with our city and county governments and The Archway Partnership.
Building on the success of this first phase, Grow Greater Dalton 2.0 will focus on two overriding strategic goals:
• Strategic Goal One: Recruit another 1,000 new primary jobs and realize $250 million in new capital investment.
• Strategic Goal Two: Provide an educated and skilled employee base for businesses and industry, as well as, opportunities for our citizens to reengage and receive training in high demand jobs with competitive salaries/benefits through an innovative approach to workforce development.

The goal of Grow Greater Dalton 2.0 is to raise $3.2 million to accomplish these objectives. To become a Grow Greater Dalton 2.0 investor, please contact Summer Nix at 706-712-0953.
