CREC Helps Destination Erie Region Prioritize Action Items

June 12, 2013

Ken Poole and Ron Kelly met with regional officials in counties throughout the Destination Erie region to obtain additional input related to a survey of potential action items to address economic and workforce challenges identified by the Destination Erie Economy and Workforce Working Group.  After incorporating this input into the quantitative survey results, the two conducted a facilitated session with the Working Group to focus attention from over fifty potential action items to a manageable number.  The group was then challenged to “think big” and brainstorm significantly impactful regional implementation strategies for the prioritized items.
