Milam County Economic Development Summit II Complete — Summit III on the Horizon

Nearly 100 Milam County leaders turned out to hear from professionals in economic development on August 13th at the Williams Event Center in Cameron.  A third summit is just around the corner set of September 11th at the Alcoa Lake Training Center.  If you are interested in attending you may contact the Rockdale MDD, Cameron Economic Development or Chamber Chamber Office.  

Summit II featured speakers such as, Matt Prochaska with Brazos Valley Economic Development who spoke about practical things leaders should know about economic development; Charley Ayres with Workforce Solutions of Central Texas share key data points on Milam County Workforce; Carlton Schwab with the Texas Economic Development Council spoke about best practices; and Heather Ledbetter with Oncor provided incite into economic development marketing.  These were just a few of the speakers -- we are very thankful for the Betty Russo, Community Representative from the Governor's Office of Economic Development and Tourism; and Jerry Walker with Impact DataSource for taking time to talk to Milam County leaders.
