Seeking Breakfast Topics


The Business Climate Enhancement committee would like your input.  Is there a specific topic that would help you and your business prosper and grow?  Perhaps you have a product or service you would like to share with the business community.


Several times throughout the year, this committee holds a breakfast meeting where a speaker or panel of speakers are brought in to help educate our business leaders. Our goal is to ensure that the topics are informative and beneficial to the business community. It also provides a great networking opportunity. Over the next year, the BCEC will be discussing the Orchard Road opportunities, if this is something of interest to you.  


Please email or call the MEDC office and let us know if other topics may be of interest to you so we can start planning our next breakfast event.


New for 2012
Property Tours  
The Business Climate Enhancement Committee would like to feature an open house/tour of the vacant properties through out the community. If you are interested in highlighting your property and/or sponsoring an open house, please call the MEDC Office and schedule your property to take part in this exciting new venture.

 Kendall County Job  Resource Fair 
Kendall County and the local EDC offices are planning a job fair with career building sessions and community resources.
