I wanted to stress the importance of the Expo. It is a launch pad for what is to come. So in 2007-08 everyone now knows about the economic downturn. What they may not know is that it took our area 3.5 – 4 yrs longer to recover. Why you may ask?
It is in part because of the economic balance.. or imbalance I should say. Many people see our area as travel, tourism, hospitality and retirement. That is why 70% of our local population is 61 yrs or older. This can be a leg on an economic stool if you will, but not the whole stool. I reflect on the book “The Potter Principles” secrets to success. Potter who is well known for economic development says that the goal should be to build or recruit light manufacturing and tech to grow an economy.
The development of low skill hourly service jobs should be a natural offerance from growing successful local companies or relocating good businesses. Though we are seeing the expansion of low skill hourly jobs. This is a problem for many reasons. Though I don’t want to go into that other than to say that the programs we are building like the Expo and with www.SORIN.chairty will provide better education opportunities as well as supportive systems, services and knowledge to help our community have exponential growth.
The Expo is a launch pad that will let us gauge community interest and support. If this goes well we can launch a multi day event in 2023. Most people know we are looking at bad economic times and the speakers we have lined up will share their knowledge with everyone to improve their business and work they do. I need everyone to help get the word out and get a ticket for the event. The tickets are $10.00 and 100% of that money goes to our 501C3 to do more educational boot camps to upskill our local workforce and find them paid jobs and or internships.
Our goal is 150 – 300 people to come through the event and we could use some help with the health stuff that has happened in the last couple weeks. I will attach the digital flyer and here is the eventbrite code for tickets: https://www.
