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.
Issues facing today's communities 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 time and work, but strong partnerships build relationships, understanding, and focus to make lasting progress. Community Partnerships are the product of time and thoughtful deliberation and rarely emerge overnight.
We celebrate and thank our Partnering Communities for the value they add to the BDC and Monroe County’s economic development strategy.
