July proved to be a busy month for Region 10. Between caregiver gatherings, economic development summits, broadband planning, transit coordination, and business classes, we barely had time to come up for air. Things only continue to get more exciting within our region. Please take a moment to learn more, and see what lies ahead for August.

Region 10 recently hosted the Grow Our Economy workshop, which opened with a great presentation by Elizabeth Garner from the State Demography office. The information was so interesting and well received by the group, it only made sense that we shared it with a larger audience. Region 10's demographics provide some interesting insights into the future of our economy. 

Danielle McCarthy of Montrose has a busy life. This retired teacher somehow finds balance in providing full time in-home care for her veteran husband, providing for her four children, working as the Volunteer Coordinator for Welcome Home Montrose, blogging for "Vibrant Caregiving," and volunteering her time toward outreach in the broader caregiver community. Learn more about the great work Danielle has been doing with Region 10.

Need help writing that business plan? Or setting up a marketing campaign? Or maybe learning how to balance your books more efficiently? Region 10's Small Business Development Center (SBDC) offers free consultation services from highly qualified business representatives. Sign up for a free consultation session now!
