"Grow Minnesota!" strives for job retention in state

excerpted from the Pope County Tribune, 12-10-07

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, in concert with 40-plus local chamber partners, completed nearly 800 visits this past year with owners and/or managers of Minnesota businesses. It's part of "Grow Minnesota!" the chamber's business and job retention program.

"Grow Minnesota!" has two purposes: to thank businesses for investing in Minnesota, and to identify their challenges to growing in Minnesota. The information collected also feeds the Minnesota Chamber's pulbic policy agenda at the Capitol.

"As a small community, it is important to let our businesses know how much they mean to us," said Cody Roghan, associate director of the Glenwood Area Chamber of Commerce. "'Grow Minnesota!' allows us to do so while finding ways to assist them, as well. We're thankful for this important program."
