The Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce is a national award winner for their Workforce Resource Assistance Program.
The Impact Award from the National Association of Development Organizations was presented to the Chamber Monday during NADO’s national conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Impact Award honors significant advances in community and economic development.
NADO staff uses the award-winning projects to share on Capitol Hill and with federal agencies and uses them in peer-to-peer training.
The Chamber won for their work to retain employees in businesses in the Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments area through the use of trained Workforce Specialist Darlene Shopher.
