The DeWitt County Development Council is working to get in front of the business community more this year.
Board President for the DCDC, David Torbert explains their Executive Director, Elizabeth Folks has worked hard in her first year with the organization and is setting a goal of getting in front of 100 business leaders in 2019.
Set up at last week's Clinton Chamber of Commerce Business Expo Folks says it was a great opportunity to introduce herself to get in front of business leaders and get a feel for what everyone is doing and how DCDC can help.
Looking ahead, Torbert explains they are working with Workforce Investment Solutions in Decatur to get employers in DeWitt County connected with workforce development and job skills enhancement for their employees or potential employees.
Also at the 2019 Business Expo, DCDC promoted their revamped USDA revolving loan fund and look forward to promoting to their upcoming Leaders Breakfast where they will talk about digital marketing with the community.
