K-REDI board talks importance of website, membership
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
One local economic development group is focusing on its website and membership.
Those were two topics of discussion during Tuesday's Kirksville Regional Economic Development Incorporated, or K-REDI meeting.
According to K-REDI Executive Director Carolyn Chrisman, the website was designed to be used as a resource for external users.
She cited companies looking for a new location and site selectors, as examples.
The website details aspects such as demographics, major area employers, incentives, the cost of doing business and transportation.
For local residents wanting to learn more about K-REDI, Chrisman encourages the use of social media.
In addition to talking about the website, the K-REDI board also learned about membership trends.
In 2011, the organization had 49 members. Currently, it has 61.
