Joplin Regional Partnership

In 2009, NCDS helped fund and launch the Joplin Regional Prosperity Initiative, a regional expansion of the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce’s economic development efforts.  Following the devastating tornado of May, 2011 Market Street Services created a new regional strategy, which led to the Accelerating Our Future campaign in 2014.  Public and private support from a region now covering seven counties across three states produced $4.5 million in funding for the new Joplin Regional Partnership, focused on improving the region’s competitive position through business retention & expansion; business attraction; and workforce development & talent recruitment.

"On behalf of the officers and directors of the Economic Development Alliance, I want to thank you and your staff for the great job NCDS did in helping restructure the Alliance, and for successful management of the fundraising campaign that fully funded our five-year action plan. The NCDS process and format delivered exactly what you said it would do when you met with Alliance members over eighteen months ago. The NCDS process engaged top regional private and public sector leaders and attracted financial support from large and small companies and communities throughout the region."
