This week we have 46 tools, stories, graphics, charts and videos that I think you'll find informative, useful, inspiring, and perhaps even humorous.  Some are economic development related directly, and some only indirectly. 🤔

BTW, #46 is the cutest.

If you're wondering what to do with the info in this newsletter, send something to your board members. It will make you look good!

As always, if you find something interesting, please send it to me.


I got this email last week:

Hi Dane,  Sometime last year, I sent you a note saying that I thought these lists were too long.

I was totally wrong!  Please know that I look forward to this email every week, and sincerely appreciate the insights. Your stats are often peppered into my board reports and other comments.

Thank you for all that you do.

Thanks!  How are you using the content in this newsletter?  Let me know.


Today's email is brought to you by Resource Development Group.

They offer customized economic development fundraising solutions for Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development Organizations.

“I’m not sure if you are stupid or brilliant!”

Those were the words of Charles McFall, President and CEO of the Anderson, South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Resource Development Group’s first client in June of 1996.

Here's their story.
