THE BDC: WHO WE ARE
The BDC is the official economic development organization for Monroe County, Michigan. We are a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our Board of Directors consists of the area’s top leaders, including representatives from manufacturing, banking, utilities and local governments.
The issues facing communities today are many and complex making partnerships increasingly more important to solve issues that involve numerous stakeholders.
Effective Community Partnerships leverage the strengths of each partner and apply them strategically to the issue at hand. It might take more work and a little longer, but strong partnerships build the relationships, shared understanding, and collective focus to make lasting progress.
Effective Community Partnerships rarely emerge overnight. They are the product of time and thoughtful deliberation.
We celebrate and thank our Partnering Communities and realize the value they add to Monroe County’s economic development strategy.
