Public invited to EMBDC annual meeting

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The East Mississippi Business Development Corporation is gearing up for its annual meeting next week.

EMBDC president Bill Hannah says they'll talk about main street and a small business initiative. They'll also focus on the Alliance for Growth. Hannah says there's a lot people can learn. This year, it won't just be EMBDC members attending. Anyone is welcome to come learn about the growth of the area.

"Our target market are those people who aren't members, so I think it's always a good thing for members or non-members to know what it is that we're doing," Hannah says.

The meeting will be Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the MSU Riley Center. It is free to attend.
