”Investments in our community are increasing, businesses are interested in relocating here, but labor force participation is down and we are navigating through a time of historic change,” says EDC Warren County’s CEO and President Jim Siplon. 

Why are there so many people who have opted out of the workforce? How do we compete for the very best employees? How are we going to build a sustainable economy for the next generation here? These are the questions we are looking to answer as a community,” adds Mr. Siplon. 

“This is the burning question of the moment, and we won’t be able to meet our own needs unless we find the right answers. It’s time to chart our path to be the community that we need to be, that we’re destined to be, that we won’t be — unless we organize and plan for the future. We want you to be there. You need to be part of this conversation.”
