Continued strong economic development growth for the Dallas Region and our member companies, as well as the ability to prepare and supply the talent for the opportunities created by that growth depends, in part, on critical public policy decisions. The DRC’s tireless advocacy efforts on behalf of a strong pro-growth business climate, an attractive quality of life, and sustainable infrastructure are critical to our priorities being met.
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 new 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.
