Ann Arbor Region Success
More than 70 community leaders, and six individual co-chairs have launched this region's most comprehensive initiative to ensure the smart and successful growth of the Ann Arbor region well into the 21st century. At the very time when the economic climate sees private and public sector organizations pulling back, these leaders in local business, education, government and non-profit enterprise are pulling together to launch Ann Arbor Region Success.
Over the past year, these leaders have worked together to give Ann Arbor Region Success a rich foundation. Through competitive research, local surveys and interviews, and a regional assessment identifying unique strengths, as well as current challenges, Ann Arbor Region Success moves now to engage the community.
From finding and networking with the next generation of leaders, to capital for start-up companies, to working with government and education sectors to create world class K -12 education, to marketing this Regions distinctively cool culture, Ann Arbor Region Success has identified the most critical actions needed to achieve long term success.
Challenging economic times will not rob us of our vision, nor our capacity to care enough to engage in building that vision. To find out how you can become involed, contact Tony VanDerworp.
