The Victoria Partnership
One of the VEDC’s greatest resources is the Victoria Partnership.
To answer the community’s desire for inclusion in the economic development process, VEDC began holding regularly scheduled meetings for both community leaders and citizens at large on September 12, 2000. With the exception of the year-end holidays, 30-50 people continue to meet each Tuesday morning to share a cup of coffee and conversation. The meetings are open to anyone with a role or interest in the economic and / or community development process.
These informal weekly meetings are held each Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. and present an opportunity for participants to share ideas regarding economic development relevant topics ranging from community assets, the economic development process, to education, or just general announcements.
The Victoria Partnership is clearly in the right place at the right time with the right agenda. Add you name to the list to receive weekly notices of topics, here.
