Here in the Counties of North Alabama, we enjoy a strong local economy. Unemployment rates are down, new business starts are up, and we’re attracting major employers to locate here. Ours is a flourishing region with an abundance of natural beauty and many great places to live, work and play.
Our chambers of commerce and other economic development organizations are busier than ever. Our elected leaders are cooperating and collaborating while putting the region first. Our schools, universities, and community and technical colleges are working to shape the workforce of the future.
Getting here took years of planning, investment, and hard work. Staying here and making sure our region continues to prosper, will take a collaborative effort.
Enter Launch 2035, a new regional partnership that will rethink and imagine our region’s economy 20 years from today.
Having kicked off in fall 2014, Launch 2035 now counts business and community leaders from across the region among its supporters. United by the belief that our region’s prosperity depends on our three counties working and planning together, these leaders are committed to fostering regional economic growth and an enviable quality of life for all our residents.
