Posted by: Economic Development Team on Wednesday, August 19, 2015

On July 30, the Charles County community gathered for the second Quarterly Business Roundtable to discuss what’s on the economic development horizon for the next quarter.

Darrell Brown, the new Director of Charles County Economic Development, kicked off the meeting with his vision for the county and stressed the importance of collaboration and engagement to help move the county’s economy forward. As Director, Darrell will represent the county to new and expanding businesses and cultivate relationships with the business community, other economic development organizations and state and regional agencies.

Yvette Turner with Southern Maryland JobSource was the guest speaker for the event and spoke about workforce and training, which was one of the main topics that came up during the previous roundtable.

Other highlights and topics covered included recent business initiatives and retention announcements, and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD) official announcement on the command's first private-public partnership under the command's Center for Industrial and Technical Excellence (CITE) designation. Attendees also got a recap of the County’s first site selection consultants familiarization (FAM) tour in June, and received updates on the $775 million Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) project announced and Waldorf’s ranking in the “Top Ten Best Small Cities to Live for Military Veterans” and “The 10 Most Affordable Washington, DC Suburbs.”
