This was the grand opening for the new Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center.  NC Cooperative Extension (Chatham County Office), Chatham County Soil and Water, Farm Services Agency and NC Forestry offices are housed at this new location.  NC Forestry's old office space was off Hwy 64 toward Siler City and the other offices were in the old Ag Building in Pittsboro since the mid 1950's.  All of these new offices are on the west side of the building.  On the east side of the building there is a large conference area to accommodate seminars, trade shows, weddings, reunions and other events.  The large conference area can accommodate a little over 600 people.  There are also smaller rooms available for smaller events.  Their website is www.chathammeetings.com (http://www.chathammeetings.com)

It looks like office space, education, and meeting/conference space are some of the answers.  

Not sure if these links will help answer that question, but, take a look.  :

I know they are so excited to be in new digs~congrats and a great investment for the county with a wonderful conference facility in the area as well! Over the years I've come to know a number of the agents there and the invaluable resource they are! Always dedicated, friendly, pleasant and sincerely helpful~doesn't get any better than that!
Shout out to Sam for his many years of service and wearing multiple hats~including his 'cowboy' hat, lol! Al Cooke~another treasure for sure :)
Charlotte Glen is a true jewel as is Debbie Roos! Not to slight others that I've just not had an area need to contact with~I feel confident in the entire team there! Thanks for helping to make Chatham Co. a great place to live!

Expenditure by government is not investing, it's spending.
