MCBL&F Partners with Mississippi Economic Council to Host Annual MEC TOUR

Register today to attend the MEC Tour in Madison County!


The Madison County Business League & Foundation is once again proud to partner with the Mississippi Economic Council to host the annual MEC Road Show in Madison County on Thursday, August 11, 2022,  from 11:30 – 1:00 at Georgia Blue – Madison located at 202 Baptist Drive, Madison.  

In early 2022, MEC released the “Securing Mississippi’s Future: Vision for Economic Growth” report, incorporating findings from 51 focus-group style meetings conducted in 18 communities across all regions of Mississippi, an online, quantitative survey, and other research.

The report identified a “lack of qualified workers” as the number one concern of businesses across Mississippi. Other issues of concern included the state’s approach to promoting career awareness and readiness; Mississippi’s ability to retain and attract workers; broadband and transportation infrastructure needs; general economic development and business climate concerns; and healthcare.

We’ll discuss these insights and more at an MEC Tour.  Your input is extremely valuable in planning for Mississippi’s business future!!
