This year Forward Devils Lake is taking a different approach to membership.

The new concept is that businesses in the Lake Region will become investors in economic development.  Forward Devils Lake wants its businesses to have an influential part in this community’s success. By becoming an investor you are supporting what our mission stands for; to foster and develop existing and new business and industry in the Lake Region. Economic Development efforts in the Lake Region are a collaboration between public and private sectors investing in our community’s growth.

What does your investment in economic development mean?

  • New customers and/or new suppliers for your service or product
  • New residents which may become new employees for you
  • Tax base growth which supports community improvements
  • Business referrals
  • Business link on our new website coming this summer
  • Discounts on TrainND courses for all employees.
  • Annual meeting invitation

How are annual investments used?

  • Recruit and retain businesses that bring new wealth into the community
  • Support workforce training and recruitment initiatives
  • Promote the region’s economy to potential clients
  • Educate and inform region’s residents about economic development activity and results
  • Coordinate local and state resources to customize support to companies considering expansion or relocation in the region
