Guest speaker Tim Cowden President and CEO of Kansas City Area Development Council (KCADC) spoke to investors about regional economic development at our October Investors meeting. He shared with LEDC investors on how KCADC markets the KC region. He talked about some of the projects in the works, projects that have located and even some that KC missed like Amazon. Even when KC didn’t make the cut for the Amazon bid many lessons were learned to make KC stronger in competing for future projects. Kansas City is a very unique town because of all the love the community has for it. He noted site selectors have taken notice seeing people showing KC pride. These are exciting times for the Kansas City area!
