SCDA Board Member Recognized For Service And New Member Welcomed
The Stephens County Development Authority recognized Clay Fisher for his outstanding service on the 2015-2016 SCDA Board at our June Meeting.
Brian Akin presented Clay Fisher a plaque and commended him on his outstanding support of the Development Authority during his tenure on the board. Stacy Miller is the new Chairman of the Toccoa-Stephens County Chamber of Commerce and will start her service on the SCDA board immediately. Stacy's bio and more information about her can be found on our website at http://www.scda.biz/local-leadership.cfm. We look forward to working with Stacy during our new fiscal year.
The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
