Focus Groups/Opportunity Workshops

In the spring of 2010 the Chamber Board of Directors took upon a great task of reexamining the strategic plan given the recent economic downturn.  After many discussions and meetings it was decided to partner with Jon Roberts wtih TIP Strategies, an economic development firm located in Austin, TX to help guide us through the process of changing our approach to economic development.

Over the summer the Chamber held many focus groups and community meetings trying to inform the public and gauge their interest in what opportunities were vital to the growth and vitality of Jefferson City/Cole County.

Attendees of these meetings were shown this presentation and then the discussions ensued.  As a follow up to the focus group each participant was then emailed a survey for further input.

At the end of September and beginning of October, the Chamber held four Opportunity Workshops.  Attendees viewed this presentation outlining many possible opportunities and were able to vote electronically on them.
