The Montana Economic Developers Association, in conjunction with the Montana Chamber Foundation and dozens of partners across the state, are excited to announce the completion of the Next Generation of Community and Economic Development Tools Analysis provided by TIP Strategies. This work sets the stage for important dialogue among our stakeholders and policy makers, with the goal of making Montana more competitive— moving from economic recovery to economic success in the midst of changing times.
