The President’s Pen is a weekly blog written by Jonathan Smith, New Vision’s President and CEO about local economic development projects and initiatives. It also covers economic trends, workforce issues, business climate policies, and manufacturing news.
New Vision is excited to announce that we are working with the Field Group to create a first class relocation guide that helps attract new residents to the Yakima Valley. The publication will highlight the region's livability and include content on health care, education, housing and things to see and do. We are very excited about this project - it's a great opportunity to tout the Valley's stellar lifestyle.
The electronic guide will sit within our www.liveyakimavalley.com site and help summarize key content on this site. We will also print the guide and share it with local businesses who routinely recruit some of their employees from outside the area.
We have lined up some great sponsors to help us underwrite this new guide. Memorial Hospital, the Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic, Sunnyside Community Hospital, Berkshire Hathaway, the Cenntral Washington Homebuilders, Moriet Miketa, the City of Yakima, Yakima Valley Tourism, and Comprehensive Mental Health have all stepped up to help us produce this new publication.
If everythings goes according to plan we should finish this guide by early March.
