A Tradition of Innovation

Existing Business Call Program

The Marion County Development Commission (MCDC) participates in Synchronist Prime to help gain an understanding of our primary employers and manufacturing sector. This program is a respected national program for existing business calls and is funded partially by area utilities companies. The information gathered helps direct economic development efforts, business advocacy on legislative issues, provide a report card for local business/community services and provides a benchmark for business in the region. The MCDC started this program in 2009. During 2011, over 40 calls were made on area employers. Statewide through this same program in 2009, economic development organizations in 52 counties called on 961 companies.

Reports from this program are included in the By the Numbers portion of this web site.
