Project 17 Economic Development meeting releasing Regional Skills and Labor Shed Study Results

Hello all, I am pleased to announce that the skill shed analysis for the Project 17 region has been completed by the Docking Institute at Fort Hays State University.  They surveyed the region over the past few months (phone by land and cell phone line) to complete the study.  I know the results are important and a valuable tool as people across the region work to help businesses expand and attract new businesses to the region.  Additionally, it is a good workforce analysis too.  This analysis is not a traditional labor shed analysis therefore it will be important to walk through the results together.   Therefore, we are scheduling a meeting to go over the study and discuss results.  The meeting to discuss the results will be held on March 12th from 10 to noon in Chanute in the Alliance Room at the Municipal building-101 South Lincoln Avenue, Chanute, KS 66720​.  The study will not be publicly released until after this meeting.  Thanks so much and look forward to seeing you soon.  Feel free to share this meeting invitation with anyone you think may be interested in this topic.
