Develop a “Regional Investment Attraction Strategy”

Ideas offered for addressing this could include hosting a business attraction/investor forum and/or familiarization (FAM) tours; developing business ambassadors to share their experience/stories, including local business owners, entrepreneurs, realtors, etc.; sharing local success stories with potential investors; and, building on the current regional investment website as a tool for promotion.
