Jul 11, 2005 — A small business initiative in St Lawrence County was a finalist in a world chamber of commerce competition. The Northern Adirondack Trading Cooperative, known locally as the "ebay project," links up artisans and small business owners with technology to help them reach national markets. The Cooperative was launched two years ago with the support of Senator Hillary Clinton.
Representatives for the St Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce went to South Africa for the competition. They didn't win the award, but they brought back stories. Gregory Warner spoke with the head of the ebay project, Ruby Moore, after her return.
The Chamber is launching another round of the Northern Adirondack Trading Cooperative this fall, with workshops in Canton and Paul Smiths. If you're an artisan or have an idea for a small business you can call Ruby Moore at 386-4000.
