Building a vibrant economy and region requires strong leadership and a collective voice. The Driving Force is that voice. It’s based on the idea that a rising tide benefits everyone, and that you will receive in direct proportion to what you contribute. Your investment will go towards regional marketing and workforce development. It’s about coming together as a united voice for the prosperity of our region.
