First Regional Economic Development Summit Held
Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism and the Texas Workforce Commission hosted the first Regional Leadership Summit on Thursday, October 21, 2010. The one-day event brought together community leaders to discuss the economic development successes and challenges of the Bluebonnet Region.
“The Bluebonnet Region is the great in-between, strategically located between Austin, Houston and San Antonio,” said Mark Rose, Bluebonnet general manager. “From Bastrop to Brenham to the east side of Hays County to Manor, we all benefit from having a regional approach to economic development. We are well positioned to be one of the most dynamic regions in Texas.”
Bluebonnet plans to host the Regional Leadership Summit annually.
“When you can form partnerships on a regional basis it just opens more doors for business in our communities,” said Joyce Bise, director of the Giddings Economic Development Corporation.
