As we prepare to spend time with family and friends, sharing love and thoughts of gratitude, we wanted to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and express some of what has made us grateful this year.
On the top of that list is you. Your support, insights, collaboration and drive to see a more economically vibrant region are what fuel our mission.
Our Board of Directors would also like to particularly thank the following leadership teams that make up ECoNA:

We at ECoNA wish a safe and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
