Educational Webinar: Site Selection - Strengthen Your Rural Strategy and General Best Practices

22 Site Selection Webinar GraphicPlease join us on Tuesday, December 6th from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. for a Zoom Webinar.

Session

This webinar provides a plethora of information and insights on site selection best practices. The Montrose Groups’ Rural Corporate Site Selection Guide is a framework for a successful approach to growing or expanding high-wage job creation and capital investment in rural areas. It includes substantial research on over 300 local and state economic development incentive programs.

For projects of all sizes, having the right information on hand, a direct and strong RFP, the right team, and proper tours can make a difference in landing a successful project or having a site eliminated very early on. Nicole Whitehead will share perspectives from practices around the state that will teach you what to add – and possibly remove – from your interactions with companies and site selectors.
