The Forward Together Steering Committee will host its first public meeting; a Visioning Summit on Economic Prosperity. The event will be held on May 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Baker College, Flint Campus in the gymnasium. It’s open to the public and community members are encouraged to invite their full network to attend. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. During the two-hour session, the planning team will introduce the Forward Together process, share initial findings from the economic research and engage participants in a series of fun and interactive discussions and activities. Free pizza and light refreshments will be provided for attendees.

Why attend the Summit?

Because this is about our future!

The Visioning Summit on Economic Prosperity presents a special opportunity for you, the people of Genesee County, to become directly involved in the process. Forward Together is led by a 24-member Steering Committee representing a wide variety of community interests. They have committed to a community-driven process where you will inspire, shape and, ultimately affirm the final Action Agenda. The Visioning Summit is the first opportunity for you to interact with the Planning Team and share your ideas. Make plans to attend and consider inviting your network as well.

What will happen at the Visioning Summit on Economic Prosperity?

At the Summit community members can expect to receive information on the County’s economic potential based on the real-world conditions in 2019. Nationally recognized economist Kevin Hively, with Ninigret Partners, will deliver a keynote address focusing on the Ten Points of Potential, or the brightest economic opportunities in the community today. Participants will be challenged to think creatively with the Planning Team and develop their thoughts around major question prompts.

Do I have to be an expert to contribute ideas?

Absolutely not! By living, working or raising a family in Genesee County, you know this place. Your intuition is vital to our success. Whether you’re just moving to the area or a fourth-generation life-long resident, your perspective is important and critical.

How will my input be used?

Following the meeting, the Planning Team will enter all input received into a database and develop a report. Upon completion, the report will be published on the Forward Together website and findings will be integrated into the countywide vision planning process.
