BECKLEY, WV (NEWS RELEASE) – Looking to learn more about what economic and community development looks like for the New River Gorge region? We’re here to help. This year’s summit will feature some old favorites, some new resources, and a few opportunities for you to help us determine what our focus should look like in 2017 and 2018. This is your chance to engage regional development professionals, connect with partners, and influence the process that guides your region’s advancement. Don’t miss it!
New River Gorge Regional Development Authority hosts this event each year to help encourage the public to engage in regional community and economic development. This regards new start-up businesses, entrepreneurship, what is anticipated in the local economy, how well the state is doing compared to our neighbors, and what resources are available to citizens who need angel investing, financing, business support, beautification tools, or access to information. We find that many people just want to know more about how the prospect handling process is handled.
