business and industry partnership visits sparking constructive dialogue on business needs
The CBICC's Business and Industry Partnership continues to meet with local companies as part of the Chamber's business retention efforts. CBICC Economic Development Vice President Jennifer Myers said the initial meetings have been well-received and are revealing the unique needs and concerns of Centre County businesses -- from transportation safety concerns and workforce development needs to potential impediments to growth. "These visits are mutually beneficial," Myers said. "We are learning more about the issues of importance to a diverse cross section of individual companies. In turn, these companies are left with a better understanding of how the CBICC can be of assistance to them, and that we are a valuable resource partner." More information about the partnership is available here. To schedule a visit with a Business and Industry Partnership team, email Jennifer@cbicc.org.
