Industry Gapping Survey
This county-wide Industry and Market Gap survey provides an opportunity for you to tell us what businesses you want, what products you need, and what kind of entertainment you enjoy. Again, it is an anonymous survey, so please feel free to be honest and direct with your responses.
NE Intern Program
Here is a great program for those looking for extra help this summer. We have sent out information on InterNE previously, but they have reworked the program and the benefits of hiring registered interns have increased. This program helps the employer by matching a percentage of an intern’s wages and provides college students with valuable work experience. Please take a look at this if you are considering or hiring summer help.
New Director for TCEDA
Voss brings to the economic development table two MBAs with an emphasis on international business and enterprise resource technologies. He also has an undergraduate degree in history. “TCEDA is a networking resource. We want to help you stay here, help you succeed,” he said. “We’re like a human Rolodex. We connect people and want to help you find answers.”
Voss is no stranger to the area. His mother Mary (Wiedel) grew up here. “We came back to visit my grandparents, Harry and Linda Wiedel, for holidays and family reunions,” he said. “I remember rabbit hunting and running around here as a kid.”
ACT to Save the Majestic Theatre
piece of Thayer County history ends as 35 mm movie film becomes obsolete at the Majestic Theater. But, another piece of Thayer County history is in the making, as volunteers from across Thayer County are showing what rural entrepreneurism is all about, working together to raise the money to reopen the theater as a non-profit organization.
The “new” Majestic will be owned and operated by Arts Council of Thayer County (ACT). The group is in the process of obtaining non-profit status.
