Engagement Bodies

With regional collaboration key to success, we work with a large and diverse network of private-sector leaders, civic organizations, government and education partners in pursuing our initiatives.


We engage more than 300 people each month across various strategy, action and advisory bodies in our charge to drive action and economic planning across industry sectors, county lines and political aisles.

Not only are the region’s opportunities and challenges larger than any one community can address, neighboring jurisdictions all too often wind up competing with each other for a bigger slice of the pie.

By leveraging our collective strengths, world-class assets and combined political power, we can create a bigger economic pie and help everyone do better.

In today’s global economy, this collaborative approach is paramount because competition for jobs, investment and tax revenue is not just down the road but across the world. A single community rarely has the workers, transportation, housing and amenities to compete on its own. Banded together, however, we have the ingredients for a more resilient and prosperous economy.
