Economic Development Organization
As the Economic Development Organization for Christian County, we are honored to work with local businesses and our regional partners to further enhance the future of our community. One way we accomplish this is through our business retention and expansion program, Show Me Strong Business. An aspect of this program includes a council of nine volunteers (including Nixa Chamber’s President & CEO, Chris Russell), who conduct confidential interviews with businesses in the County to understand their needs, challenges, and successes. We use this information to respond to overarching opportunities to make Christian County an even better place to do business.
Through the COVID-19 pandemic, our Show Me Strong Business program has enhanced beyond just the efforts of the confidential business interviews. We had the opportunity to connect with businesses on a new level, as so many members of the business community faced uncertainty like never before. We also hosted high-level officials, both on the state and local levels, on weekly webinars to bring the most up-to-date information to our business community. Those webinars can be found on our COVID-19 Response Page on our website here: https://showmeccmo.com/covid-19-business-resources/
