Business & Workforce Development

Business Attraction & Retention Committee merges with Education & Workforce Development

Combining the strengths, assets and intellectual capital of the Business Attraction & Retention Committee with the Education & Workforce Development Committee generates greater synergies between the two core missions – attracting and retaining businesses depends upon a 21st century workforce and a 21st century workforce needs a robust economy and 21st century industry sectors! Working together, we anticipate that the outcomes will better support this essential economic development strategy.
