Next Monday, November 5th from 6-8pm at the Elaine K. Smith Center, there will be the fifth Boulder City Think Tank hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. These open city-wide meetings began one full year ago, with the first meeting being held August 2017. We have to say, it’s been interesting to watch the community involvement on these over time! We’ve been to almost all of them, and they are always interesting and informative.
In case you didn’t attend any of the prior events, let’s recap some basics:
What is a ‘Think Tank’ you ask? It’s defined as “a body of experts providing advice and ideas on specific economic problems.”
With the pending Interstate 11 interchange, Jill Lagan, CEO of the Chamber, created the first Think Tank event in 2017 to bring the community together to brainstorm on what makes Boulder City special, and marketable. Now that Interstate 11 is open, this creates an even greater reason to focus on the community’s efforts to market Boulder City.
Of the meetings held to date, Jill says, “There were lots of great ideas that were taken down, and a variety of action committees were created out of that list. Next week’s event will be a progress report on what’s been accomplished – which is quite a lot so far. A Master Marketing Committee was formed who have been coordinating with a number of members of the business community, as well as City officials.”
She emphasizes that even if you missed any of the previous Think Tank events, don’t be a stranger at this one – all are welcome!
The Elaine K. Smith Center is located at 700 Wyoming Street.
