Meeting Held On NCMC Campus
Twenty individuals representing six north central Missouri counties met at North Central Missouri College on Thursday, Sept. 19 to discuss the development of an entrepreneurial facilitation organization. The vision of this organization is to provide small business owners with confidence, assistance in starting and growing more businesses with greater productivity and additional tools necessary to drive economic development in this region. An existing group, the Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation Organization had representatives in attendance to describe the process they used in developing their group. Activities at the meeting included the formation of ad hoc committees for organization, board development, public relations and fund raising. Those interested in the activities of the new organization should contact Duane Kohlstaedt at Farmers State Bank at DKohlstaedt@fsb.com.
