With little doubt, your BRE program probably consumes a good majority on your time on a weekly basis. Between scheduling your Synchronist visits, conducting the calls, logging the results, and completing follow-up, it is perhaps the most underappreciated category of work local economic developers do.
That's why PDI, in conjunction with the SMART Conference, has created the Business Retention and Expansion Awards Program. Your organization could be recognized by Governor Branstad for outstanding work with Iowa's existing companies.
Nominations are due April 1, and the complete details as well as a list of past winners can be viewed at https://www.pdiowa.com/events/business-retention-expansion-awards/. Remember, you can only receive recognition if you are nominated, so get your paperwork in today!
Final Reminder — Grow Iowa Day is approaching quickly, and I hope you have February 4th on your calendar. Booths to showcase your community, company, or organization are still available.

We will see you soon.
