Through collaborative leadership we supplied a pipeline of $812 million in new capital investment projects to strengthen and diversify the assets in Iowa. But beyond big number private-sector prospects we also work with the progressive small businesses, nonprofits, civic leaders, workforce, education institutions, utilities, transportation, housing, etc to maximize productivity and long-term prosperity in our evolving economic landscape.

New Media Roundtable: How FREE marketing is allowing businesses, nonprofits and government in Tama County to do more, faster and cheaper, May 24

Last summer we did a Roundtable featuring pioneers of Tama County’s green technology sector who are moving our economy forward. This summer we are introducing you to Tama County’s pioneers in new media who are using technology to do business, nonprofit development and govern on a smaller budget, faster, and a broadened audience scope. For a rural county this means four-laning an information highway just like the we are four-laning our U.S. 30 Highway to connect our local assets to the rest of the world and maximize productivity.

This roundtable will delve into ways in which we can help each other unlock the potential of new media:

  • PART I: short introductory demo’s on how pioneers in Tama County are using six basic platforms: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Flickr or blogs in innovative ways
  • PART II: open question and answer session where we ask a panel of new media pioneers about their successes, what limitations they are running into, and other general advice they may have for people who may be embarking on new media exploration.
  • PART III: we ask our most visionary local new media pioneers to speculate and help predict the future of new media for our local stakeholders

Just like green efficient technology is not going to disappear but rather strengthen and evolve, so too new media offers ways to increase local productivity. So come on over. Make yourself comfortable and let’s chat about how new media can benefit our rural economy.
