      • Economic Summit (Lindsey) – remote update. Waiting on survey results from Melissa Hamilton, but all in all, Summit appears from feedback to be a grand success in all aspects. From venue, new location in Cascade, record attendance, presenter’s thoughts, State agencies participating, connections made, content of presentations, revenue from sponsorship & attendance, plus roughly half the cost of year’s prior. Looking for a few board members to take the reigns on thank you notes for our sponsors. Please report to Dylan and we can coordinate that list and addresses to send to. Would love to have completed during month of November. Will also run thank you ad in Star News this week. A huge, huge thank you to our amazing planning committee who helped make this all possible. Incredibly proud of our Board.
