Much has been accomplished since the formation of myregion.org a decade ago, when our government, business and civic leaders began working together to achieve Central Florida's global economic competitiveness while enhancing the quality of life of its citizens. How has the region progressed? Is regional collaboration working? Are we improving our region's ability to compete globally? Are we becoming a "world-class" region? Where in the World Are We?
Shelley Lauten, President of myregion.org, will reserve the first Tuesday of every month to informally meet with members of the community to discuss the results of Where in the World Are We? – 2009 Progress Report for the Central Florida Region. This fact-based research examines how the region has progressed in the six priority areas of Economic Leadership, Education, Environment, Quality of Life, Smart, Quality Growth, Regional Resolves and Cooperation, and how it compares to other similar regions in the nation and the world.
"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and together, we can accomplish just about anything for Central Florida," said Lauten. " I look forward to listening and learning from you, about the issues that matter most to our region, as we work together to support regional collaboration and regional solutions throughout Central Florida."
myregion.org is one of four lines of business by which the Central Florida Partnership focuses on "Regional Research and Resolves." By identifying and examining the changing demographics and powerful trends that are shaping the Central Florida Region - myregion.org is helping to identify the issues and challenges that affect our future. Working together with Orlando, Inc. (Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce - Regional Entrepreneurship), BusinessForce (Public Policy Advocacy), and Leadership Orlando (Regional Leadership), the Central Florida Partnership is moving "Ideas to Results."
