On a quarterly basis, beginning January 12, 2023, a selected topic will be presented by known experts representing opposing sides. They will present arguments which will be followed by questions, facilitated discussion and open dialogue by participants. The discussion will be respectful, and all participants will be given equal time to speak. It is the goal of the Committee that the topics are presented in a fact-based platform and will be the catalyst for meaningful and considerate dialogue.
Why is an economic development organization developing such a program, you may ask. Every topic listed impacts the economic growth and vitality of a community. We must make informed, educated and practitioner-based decisions to assist our businesses and investors. Without productive, fact-based dialogue we cannot effectively determine the positive and negative implications for our residents.
