2021 WIN Summit
The 2021 WIN Summit was held recently in Sioux Falls. From sessions on talent retention and talent attraction to listening to keynote speaker Chad Greenway, the day’s events left people refreshed and refueled.
Members of the GOED team recently had the pleasure of joining Heartland Power (Heartland Consumers Power District) of Madison on a tour of their great community that included stops at Mustang Seeds, Falcon Plastics, Gehl, and DSU MadLabs. It really helped to familiarize GOED staff with Madison and its economic drivers as well as introduce our team to local leaders. We would love to visit other places across South Dakota. Want to showcase your community and share with everyone what your town has to offer? If interested, please contact us at 605.773.4633 or email us at email@example.com.
