2021 Economic Alliance Strategic Focuses
Jan 29, 2021
During the Annual Meeting on January 28, Economic Alliance Executive Director, Doug Neumann, laid out the strategies developed and shaped with input from members through discussions at Innovation Council meetings and one-to-one outreach to member businesses in the past year. This collaborative agenda is not only built by all of us working together, but will be executed as such throughout the year too.
Traditional programs and services that members have relied on the Economic Alliance to provide will continue in 2021, specifically under the core functions of Economic Development & Workforce, Public Policy, Business Support and Community Development.
The past year has permanently changed things in our society, and that’s certainly true in our industry. The way that businesses grow and succeed, the way regional economies grow and succeed – there are things that will never again look like they did in 2019. All of this was taken into consideration when developing the 2021 Strategic Plan.
