Building Tomorrow Together

The DRC is deeply invested in strengthening the Dallas Region and its vibrant business community. Our strategic plan, called “Building Tomorrow Together,” is based on 4 core priorities:

  • Increasing economic growth
  • Enhancing quality of life to attract and retain the best and brightest workers from around the world
  • Strengthening the local talent pipeline for all students, from pre-K through higher education
  • Advocating for pro-business, pro-growth public policies to achieve these priorities and strategically manage our continued growth

We work with hundreds of member companies and regional partners to advocate for pro-business, pro-growth public policies to achieve these priorities and to strategically manage our region’s continued growth.


Through the DRC’s work in economic development and supporting pro-growth public policy, Dallas has become one of the top markets in the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. However, with success comes new challenges. Our strategic plan builds on the progress in recent years to grow and expand our business community, while committing to address long-term challenges—most significantly developing and attracting the talent needed to meet the future needs of local companies—and those companies considering a move to the region.

The DRC will continue to focus on leading economic development and growth, driving improvements in public education, and influencing public policy to meet the business community’s workforce needs and raise the region’s profile—across the United States and around the world.
