Smart Economic Development Conference

Cindy Ranniger and Sue Schrad from the Carroll Chamber/CADC along with Carroll Mayor Jim Pedelty; Manning Mayor Harvey Dales; Marion Burns, MidAmerican Energy Company; and Larry Sporrer, Templeton Area Development Corp. attended the 25th Annual Smart Economic Development Conference in Des Moines yesterday (Thursday, May 6).  The day consisted of a robust line-up of top-notch speakers.  Keynote speaker Brent Pollina shared information on site selection and state and local incentives.  He shared statistics on Iowa's ranking for attracting business and industry to the state.  Workshops ranged from: financing options, workforce, branding, spec building, social media and much more.  It was a very good day, with many ideas being brought back to Carroll County communities.
