SEDP to Participate in Pure Michigan Jobs Team Academy, Gain Insight Into Site Selection Process
Our state economic development partner, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, is hosting a new event known as the Pure Michigan Jobs Team Academy. It is an opportunity to learn from top site selectors from across the nation about how they evaluate communities and how we can get their attention for new business projects in Shiawassee County. Site selector participants will include McCallum Sweeney, Austin Consulting, Kate McEnroe Consulting and Grubb & Ellis.
This class will offer us a behind the scenes look at the site selection process, the opportunity to share ideas on the best way to market to these professionals, and receive one on one feedback on our organization's efforts.
There are four academies that are being held statewide - we are participating in the Lansing event in late February. We have already submitted a detailed request for proposal for a hypothetical business attraction project, which will be evaluated as part of the event.
