As 2019 comes to a close, the Bismarck Mandan Chamber Economic Development Association is working on their 2020 Strategic Plan.
Chamber President Brian Ritter says they're looking three years down the road
The plan will address workforce development by attracting and retaining local businesses, help small businesses address needs, and projects to enhance the quality of life for people that live in the area.
"The great thing about our organization in particular is that when we developed this strategic plan, we defined our goals, we defined our objectives and then, most importantly, our action items. This really lays out the course for how we are going to accomplish these objectives and how we are going to accomplish these goals," Ritter said.
Ritter says over the next three years, the organization will review and adjust their plan to fit members' needs.
