Identify companies and sectors of the economy that play to the region’s strengths and are poised for growth and conduct visits to them with industry leaders.


Maintain and grow jobs through workforce training and collaboration with area colleges and universities, vocational schools, and other educational institutions to retain graduates in the local economy


Develop and implement programs to support and mentor entrepreneurship, and support local development efforts that create desirable spaces in which to live and work
