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.
Our office is pleased to share a brand new Yakima Valley relocation guide. It is designed to help local employers attract talented people to the Yakima Valley. The new guide was shared at the association’s annual meeting. “This new publication tells a great story about the Yakima Valley and we think it will help attract new residents,” said New Vision president Dave McFadden.
The new relocation guide sits on the association’s website, www.liveyakimavalley.com. New Vision printed copies of the guide and it can also be downloaded from the website. Over the next few months the development association will run a search engine marketing campaign to highlight the guide.
The guide was underwritten by the Central Valley Homebuilders Association, Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, the Yakima Valley Farmworkers’ Clinic, Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate, Sunnyside Community Hospital, and a host of other sponsors. According to McFadden, “The project brought together a number of stakeholders who believe in our Valley’s livability – we appreciate our partners who stepped us to produce this new guide.”
Our association also thanks the Field Group for producing the new relocation guide. They did a great job managing this project and producing a first rate publication that celebrates our tremendous lifestyle.
