Talent Attraction:  Sub-committee work continues on the eight initiatives. The current ideas being pursued focus on retaining young professional, enhanced internship programs, alumni recruitment from the areas higher education institutions, job sharing, just to name a few. Please reference the Momentum West website for details on the initiatives.  If you’d like to become involved let me know and we’ll get you connected with the initiative of your choice.  

Event/Forums:  In additional to the NWITA event w/Exportech and the Industrial Land Development seminar mentioned earlier in the newsletter, the team will be putting together a list of events through the end of calendar year 2018.  Once these are determined we’ll be presenting sponsorship opportunities for these events.  

Economic Development:  The group will be meeting in mid-April for a discussion on DNR regulatory items, the Family Friendly Workplace initiative and the Inspire software platform for career planning.

Business Attraction:  The committee continues to work on day trips across the St. Croix into Minnesota with the WEDC.  The team is also continuing to pursue a site selector visit/event for the region. We are also targeting Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison developers/brokers.

Fundraising:  This is the lifeblood to our sustainability and ability to drive our talent and business attraction and development efforts forward.  Please consider becoming a member of our organization via an investment of time or dollars.  For a full presentation on our programs, lease email or call me and I’d be happy to pay you a visit.
