Business Retention and Expansion

July 19, 2022

Business Retention and Expansion Forum

Nassau County Economic Development Board


We have a BRE (Business Retention and Expansion) Forum on September 29 from 8 AM to 10 AM at TOWN OF CALLAHAN, FIRE DEPARTMENT, 1960 S Kings Rd, Callahan, FL 32011. Our existing businesses and workforce are the best barometers of how a community functions. In response to the changing needs of our business community, establishing a business retention and expansion program offers a set of resources and tools that adapt to fit the needs of our community. Please join our BRE Partners and us for our second Round Table Discussion, as we will be addressing feedback from the last event


Topics will include:

  • Success Stories from local Businesses
  • Infrastructure Grant Awarded to the Town of Callahan
  • NCEDB Quarterly Metrics Report

The efforts of our BRE Task Force have contributed to moving us toward sector partnerships, career pathways, and other opportunities for closer alignment between workforce, economic development, education, and social services strategies.

Having the support at a local and state level will allow us to build on the work done separately in our community and move forward in partnership.
