Let’s put it all together!
Capri Chapman, Holdrege Development Corporation

During the final joint session of the day, attendees gathered to hear from three industry experts followed by a group activity. Capri Chapman, Garry Clark, and Nancy Striebel lead the group activity that focused on three primary areas: Employer Engagement, Community Partnerships, and Design Innovations. Attendees selected a group based on which topic best related to their interest, field or project. The groups brainstormed possible ideas and solutions related to workforce housing issues in Nebraska and then came back together for a report out to all attendees.
Here are the results.
