Economic Summit to be Held in Winamac Today

The second in a series of economic summits for Pulaski County is scheduled for today. With a focus on “Branding Your Business,” the economic summit will be held today at 11:30 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Winamac.

Marketing Consultant Jim Walton of Brand Acceleration from Indianapolis will be present to make a presentation and explain how businesses can improve their image, and keep their current clientele while expanding to new clients as well.

“We’re hopeful that it will be a pretty good turnout,” said Nathan Origer, Executive Director of the Community Development Commission.

These economic summits take place because of a strategic plan that was put together last year. One of the early tasks of the CDC is to show people at the state-level that the county is acting on their strategic plan, getting information to citizens that would be difficult otherwise because the CDC “is not always on the radar as an organization.”

According to Origer, these summits allow the CDC to engage better with the communities it serves.
