EDAC Business Attraction Subcommittee Update

Pete Klute, Chair – At the committee’s most recent meeting on September 22, Jim Mullin, Scottsdale’s Business and Economic Vitality Director, reviewed his organization’s new lineup and the various efforts his department has underway for economic development in Scottsdale. He and the committee discussed how the Chamber and the business community can support those efforts. A draft questionnaire to be used in collecting information on avocations and other information that Chamber members might want to share with prospects considering relocating to Scottsdale was distributed for review and input. Rick Kidder discussed the IDA grant program which might be used to underwrite the production of new marketing materials to be used to assist in attracting new businesses to Scottsdale. Work is underway to prepare a comprehensive proposal to be presented to the IDA board at an upcoming meeting.
