Our recent Economic Outlook Forum (EOF) was an excellent morning filled with great information and inspiration. Our focal point was seeking BOLD ideas for our dynamic future.
BOLD is a community defining its vision, mission and values, and collaborating with civic officials and leaders throughout the community to come together for the success of the Bay Area. Our community has survived because of the passion of the people that live here. Where would this area be without the John Whitty’s, the Louie Simpson’s, the Joanne Verger’s or dozens of others throughout our history. Where would this community be without all of us that care enough about it to come to activities like EOF and learn what opportunities and challenges are facing our economy in the future so that we can plan to succeed? You are all leaders. Everyone plays a role in this community. It’s our time to come together with a common vision for, and a common voice defining, what our home is and will be. It is time that we took the reins and define who we are, what we want to be, and what is good for us and our children. Now that’s a BOLD idea!
We know every business venture starts with a vision. So I’m here to ask you, What is your bold idea for Oregon’s Bay Area and Coos County? This is your chance to voice those ideas. BOLD is about driving change through engagement. To keep change moving, we will report out your ideas and those from the Economic Outlook Forum at WBC on Jan. 10. Then together we will define our next steps.
Remember “our business is helping your business”, and like us on Facebook.
