Regional Leaders' Retreat
On January 17 & 18, 2014, join other regional leaders as we plan for our future economic development opportunities.

The Junction City, Manhattan and Wamego Chambers of Commerce will join together again for the annual 2014 Regional Leaders' Retreat - Regionalism: The Symphony of the Flint Hills.

Courtney Dunbar, ECCD, EDFP, Economic Development Leader, Olsson Associates, will facilitate this year's event.  Courtney is a leader in economic development and has written several community plans focused on developing vital, innovative communities that entice economic growth and redevelopment.  Her innovative concepts will lead us in a collaborative effort, enabling us to work together as a region on workforce development, attracting target industries, land-use planning, building trust in the region, regional transportation access, and building a regional brand/logo.
