Business Growth Challenge in South Dakota

Ian Scott on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 11:15:49 am

The Rapid City (SD) Area Chamber of Commerce posed a challenge to its members – grow! 

The challenge is part of new board chair Lia Green’s “Power of One” campaign that encourages each chamber member to create at least one new job during the coming year.  If successful, the effort will yield at least 1,150 new jobs for the region.

The chamber has joined forces with the local economic development partnership and small business development center to provide information and access to business and employment growth services.  They will also track progress and highlight growing businesses in their monthly print newsletter.  

They’re off to a great start with 56 new jobs already.  Read more about the program on page 4 of the Rapid City (SD) Area Chamber’s November Investment Report.

This program is a great example of the role all chambers can play in economic development.
