Free Webinar for NREDA Members
"Empowering Retail Retention and Recruitment in Your Community"

 Wednesday, March 15, 2023
2:00 p.m., Eastern Time

Why Join Us: When you think of retail, what comes to mind? The local coffee shop downtown or a national chain where you like to shop? What is the difference between a local retail business and a national brand? Lacy Beasley will cover national trends in retail real estate and address the different approaches to national retail recruitment vs. local downtown revitalization. Rural communities need both national and local retailers. This complimentary webinar will highlight success stories where local stakeholders made a difference in retail retention and recruitment by using strategic partnership.

And electric cooperatives have another powerful resource to help support and promote their local business community: the free Co-op Connections member benefit program. We’ll take a look at the new and improved website and learn how you can help power a small business comeback, while saving co-op members money in the process.

Who You Will Hear From:

· Lacy Beasley, Retail Strategies
· Scott Bialick, Touchstone Energy Cooperatives

Let's collaborate and find new ways to support the small towns and rural communities we serve.
