It's going to be exciting this Thursday night as we talk about the past, present and future for Tiffin and Seneca County, Ohio. 

  • State Development Director David Goodman will talk about the transformation of the Ohio Development Services Agency, about how it helps create jobs through its 70+ economic and community development programs, and what the future holds. 
  • I will share my economic development vision and what some of our larger initiatives will be for the coming year. 
  • Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we will honor some area businesses and partners who have made a big difference in our community.  

We still have room, so please reserve your spot by contacting our Director of Development Karen Bowers at or by phone at 419.447.3831. You can also make online reservations.
