News from the COO's desk - May 2015
Friday, May 01, 2015
I just completed a move back to Minnesota which concluded with a long drive from the Bay Area in California to the Midwest. Along the way I passed through many communities we support and was reminded how closely connected we are despite the vast landscape. Golden Shovel has focused its efforts on connecting communities across regions, so when seeing a region as large as half the country I see the impact economic development organizations pushing their regions forward at the same time has on the country. In that sense, we are all a team pushing our country forward to strengthen the national economy. We are all a part of something much bigger, so thank you to all the economic development organizations that keep us moving forward.
The brand new GoldenShovel.com
Golden Shovel has launched our brand new website! We have updated GoldenShovel.com with a brand new responsive design that works great with all devices and finalizes our brand transition that we began late last year. Please give us any feedback on the new website and, as always, we will continue to improve it throughout the year.
