The State of North Iowa is an opportunity to hear directly from city and county leadership from Mason City, Clear Lake, and Greater North Iowa as they highlight recent accomplishments, outline future goals, and offer ideas about current business and community issues. This event compliments the Vision North Iowa strategic planning efforts.
As an initiative of the county-wide strategic plan, the Chamber will host an event this month to report to business leaders and citizens exactly which goals in the Vision North Iowa plan have been accomplished, and what progress has been made on others.
In addition to a panel - which includes Mason City Mayor Bill Schickel, Clear Lake Mayor Nelson Crabb, County Supervisor Tim Latham, and North Iowa Corridor EDC President Chad Schreck - two distinguished state-wide leaders will share their perspective.
• Debi Durham, who will present the keynote address, serves as Director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the Iowa Finance Authority.
• Joe Murphy, the Executive Director of the Iowa Business Council, will share data points and metrics that serve as key indicators of economic growth.
The State of North Iowa breakfast is scheduled from 8-9:30AM on Thursday, January 23 at the Mason City Arena and is sponsored by Clear Lake Bank & Trust.
