COTC welcomes Coshocton Chamber to Montgomery Hall

| March 5, 2014

COSHOCTON – Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) and the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce the Chamber’s plans to move into vacant space in Montgomery Hall, the building in Roscoe Village owned and operated by COTC. While an exact date has not been scheduled, both organizations are pleased with what this will mean for the community.

“What an excellent opportunity for an expanded partnership and community interaction between the Coshocton County Chamber and the College,” stated Amy Stockdale, Chamber Executive Director. “We’re excited to partner with COTC, especially working hand-in-hand to further workforce development opportunities for area residents and businesses.”

“The college is deeply grateful for the community’s support during our campaign a few years ago, and this is an opportunity to give back to the Coshocton community,” stated Bonnie L. Coe, Ph.D., COTC President. “It’s a win-win for the community and our two organizations, as this partnership promotes job growth and related opportunities in a cost-efficient manner.”

According to David Brillhart, Vice President for Business and Finance at COTC, there will be slight modifications to the second-floor office space next to the Richard F. Simpson Board Room in Montgomery Hall. Additionally, existing conference space will be utilized by the Small Business Development Center, the purpose of which is well aligned with the COTC’s mission.

“This is not a typical landlord-tenant relationship, but rather a unique, collaborative partnership between a primary community organization and your community’s technical college,” Coe added.

The state of Ohio continues to encourage efficiency initiatives among publicly-funded and/or state assisted entities; pushing for creative partnerships and ventures between local and state organizations. This partnership is well aligned with that focus, according to Brillhart.

Internal and external signage will be updated to reflect the changes and assist visitors with way-finding. For further information about COTC, go to www.cotc.edu. For further information about the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce, go to www.coshoctonchamber.com.
