New CED Investor Event Hits the Mark!
The Will County CED showcased the first, “CED After 3” event on February 22nd. Thank you to the many investors who braved the rain and cold to join us! We appreciate the support of Wight & Co as our inaugural sponsor and the Joliet Area Historical Museum for their wonderful hospitality and venue.
CED After 3 is a new series of events offered “after 3pm” to investors, to not only engage with others in an alternative setting from our usual group of events, but to also support organizations around the county. Our inaugural CED After 3 showcased the Joliet Area Historical Museum and highlighted the impact of tourism on our county as well as the importance of having amenities for our residents to enjoy.
Each CED After 3 will be held between 3 and 6pm and will highlight sites around the county with a hope of bringing our group to enjoy new places and experiences while supporting our local establishments.
We are incredibly excited for the enthusiasm expressed by all that attended and look forward to hosting the next CED After 3 this summer!
