Claremore Industrial and Economic Development Authority is launching a new group for young professionals called Claremore Collective on Jan. 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Will Rogers Memorial. The group is for people between the ages of 21 and 45 who want to develop and work on special initiatives in the community.“You should get involved if you believe that Claremore is a great place to work, live and play,” said Brandon Irby, executive committee chair of the new organization and Associate Director at CIEDA. “We will be unified as one voice to move the city forward. That is why our tagline for this year is, ‘Together for the city.’”Claremore Collective is organized into work crews, each with a specific purpose. Each crew holds monthly meetings, organizes initiatives, hosts events and promotes volunteer opportunities.The association consists of five crews: Arts and Entertainment, Attraction, Development, Government Relations and Next Gen Leadership. Those who join the association can participate in one or more groups by volunteering for initiatives and by attending monthly meetings.All of the meetings are at the North Block Common on Claremore Main Street.
