Our Updated Vision, Mission & Core Values

The BDC Board of Directors held a Strategic Alignment Session in February with the staff members. This session was led by Dr. Donald Spencer.

After the meeting was finished, Dr. Spencer worked with the staff to update BDC’s Vision, Mission and Core Values. We feel these statements better reflect the work of the Monroe County Business Development Corporation.

Monroe County will be a thriving community with a vibrant and diverse economy.

The Monroe County Business Development Corporation works with its strategic partners to attract and retain a diverse range of businesses that create an economic environment of innovation and success.


We develop relationships with key strategic partners that create synergy and benefit our businesses and communities.

We roll up our sleeves and immerse ourselves in solving the challenges that face our businesses and communities.

We conduct our duties in an honest, ethical and, transparent manner.

We engage in continuous self-improvement to increase our knowledge, skills, and qualifications.

We carefully listen to others and treat them with dignity, both internally and externally.
