Clarkson University is a partner in the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce project Northern Adirondack Trading Cooperative (NATC), known locally as the eBay project, selected as a finalist in the World Chambers Competition for most innovative projects around the world.

The eBay project is one of the four best chamber projects in the world and one of only two U.S. finalists in the Best Unconventional Project category. The project was conceived by chamber member Karen St. Hilaire and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Other partners in the project include Hewlett Packard, HSBC bank, Rural Opportunities Inc., SCORE, Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and eBay.
