Chamber Of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama’s president and CEO was chosen to study economic recovery and resilience strategies with dozens of other professionals from communities around the country.

Jim Page was selected by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives along with 41 other Chamber of Commerce professionals for the year-long Fellowship for Economic Recovery.

The program offers education and tools Chamber of Commerce members can use for improving post-COVID pandemic outcomes in the communities they serve.

“(Page) has been instrumental in two different economic recovery and resilience efforts here: post-tornado and our current COVID crisis,” said Tuscaloosa Chamber Board of Directors Chairman Bobby Bragg. “I have no doubt that he will bring home economic best practices to better our community as well as highlight some of our area’s successes with his fellow executives.”

Participants in the fellowship will focus on addressing aspects of recovery, from education and talent to development and entrepreneurship.

The fellowship was designed to help Chambers refine their economic recovery goals and help their organizations nationwide build programs and processes that can be shared among Chambers.
