Our Business Retention & Expansion Program survey project would not have been possible without the cooperation and involvement from our local businesses and industries. Between March 2016 and October 2016, sixty-three businesses, across eight industry sectors, took the time and effort required to participate in the surveying process. From a workforce perspective, the community as a whole, and specific industry sector issues, the meetings allowed positive dialogue to occur for a better understanding of the community’s current atmosphere in relation to local businesses. The participating Milledgeville-Baldwin County’s businesses demonstrated engagement in their community and we are grateful for their involvement.
