ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Leaders from the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development commission, and Convention and Visitors Bureau stress they're working separately and together to promote Albany.

They talked to elected leaders today at the Bridge House about their distinct roles but also about how they team up to keep businesses happy and to stimulate economic activity. Right now, they're focused on spreading a positive message about Albany.

Chamber President Catherine Glover said, "This really is a great place to go to school and to study and to live. We have a very affordable area to live in. We have readily accessible water. We've got great assets that we need to capitalize on. More importantly though, our message to the community is, think positively."

Mayor Willie Adams says that's a message he agrees with. He carries around a list of positive things the Albany community has to offer. He calls Albany the good news city.
