May 2014 Update
May has proven to be an exciting month for Golden Shovel and myself. Personally, I became a proud father of a new baby boy who is already three weeks old. While I was learning about diapers and sleep deprivation the team was in full action. Here are some of the highlights.
We attended the Mid-America Economic Development Council’s 2014 Best Practices conference in Minneapolis. Despite co-chairing the conference committee, I was absent for reasons noted above but John and Lindsey reported back that the speakers were top notch and the networking excellent.

John presented at the Montana Economic Development Association conference at the beginning of the month. He received positive feedback and continued developing relationships with the great economic developers of Montana.
