Main Street 2.0 (09 National Conference)

Pam Myers (Aledo director), Lori Fairfield (Pontiac director), Diana Orris Kenney (Crystal Lake director)

PROUD Executive Director Lori Fairfield and her assistant Beckie Linn Gregory are attending the National Main Street Convention in Chicago this week. We also have dedicated board members who took time away from their business to attend some or all of the conference: Bob Karls, Dee McCarty, Kathy McLean, Deb Jaso, Todd Snedecor and Joyce Cole.

There is lots of enthusaim for revitalizing our downtowns and supporting the independent business owners here! We are attending workshops on economic development, promotions, events, on marketing and the internet, and so much more!

"Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell, and organize!"

Governor Quinn stopped by to fire up the troops. We are fortunate in IL to have a governor who is completely behind the mission of Main Street.
