Vision 2022, a community summit helping to move Manitowoc County Forward, was held yesterday at the Manitowoc Holiday Inn. Dean Halverson is the CEO for Leede Research
Approximately 300 community and business leaders were in attendance, sharing nearly four months of research on a variety of topics, with a focus on creating positive speak, and spirit, and how to attract and retain the “younger working demographic” to Manitowoc County. Peter Wills of Progress Lakeshore addressed what he calls a “culture shift”.
David Beurle, CEO OF Future IQ Minneapolis was the event’s Keynote Speaker. He is a world renowned, 20 plus year expert, with overseeing more than 200 community visioning sessions and related projects. He says there must be a “three pronged” approach to long term sustainability.
All agree that the county is on the right path, but can only remain there through a solid public-private partnership with all entities working and communicating together. To participate in Vision 2022, or to view all the information from yesterday’s summit, log onto www.v22nc.org.
