Happy Valentine's Day! In the spirit of the day, we'd like to celebrate all kinds of love, including the deep connection many of us feel for the communities, towns, cities, states, provinces and countries we call home. Economic developers know this better than anyone.
In honor of Valentine's Day, we offer up this beautiful image to remind us that the work we do can be based on the deep affection we feel for the land, people, and cultures that make our lives special. You are helping to nurture your existing businesses, create jobs, attract workforce, drive new investment to your region, and stimulate your area economy.
If that's not a labor of love, I don't know what is.
Please let us know why you love your community - is it the beauty of the landcape? The food? The friendly people? The arts scene? The unique mix of cultures? The quality of life? Today is your day to shout it from the rooftops. Feel free to download our image and share!
