The Madison County Creative Economy Council (MCCEC) will host a business after hours event on Thursday, Sept. 25 featuring music, exhibitors, refreshments and networking at the Farmer’s Table Cooking School at the Town of Livingston. The group’s goal is to build business-to-business relationships within Madison County, and it works to promote and celebrate Madison County’s Creative Economy.

“We want to encourage our businesses to do business with other local businesses whenever possible,” explains Jan Collins, executive director of the Madison County Business League.

Inspired by the Mississippi Creative Economy study (www.mscreativeeconomy.com) put together by the Mississippi Development Authority and the Mississippi Arts Commission, the Madison County Creative Economy Council was formed to help others understand Madison County’s creative economy as it exists today, helping the county to be better positioned to support and further develop this key sector. Governor Bryant has proclaimed 2014 as the year of the Creative Economy.

The Madison County Creative Economy Council is a convergence of organizations with a strong interest in seeking out and promoting all that is good in the County. The people and organizations that make up the Madison County Creative Economy Council include the Canton Chamber of Commerce Main Street Association, Canton Convention and Visitors Bureau & Film Office, Flora Area Chamber of Commerce, Madison the City Chamber of Commerce, Madison County Business League, Madison County Chamber of Commerce, Madison County Economic Development Authority, Madison County Foundation, Ridgeland Chamber of Commerce, Ridgeland Tourism Commission, and Susan Marquez Consulting. “It’s been an amazing collaboration by representatives of all these organizations,” said Collins.
