An extensive network of stakeholders and experts was engaged to develop the Memphis & Shelby County Regional Economic Development Plan.

The co-chairs who led this plan’s development will steer its implementation, support new initiative development and advocate for strategic economic transformation throughout Metro Memphis.  Together with an advisory committee made up of business and civic leaders from throughout the region, they will steer its course, establish partnerships, secure the necessary resources and ensure the design of powerful initiatives to achieve its goals.
