Welcome from the Executive Director
Greetings from the BLDC!
As we head into a new fiscal year, we’re excited about the opportunities we see before us, and confident that our team of experts will lead us to great success in 2023 and beyond. Butte is on the cusp of great things, and our focus is to ensure that the work we do helps to push the community we love, over-the-top!
While we work to improve the economic vitality of Butte-Silver Bow, we want to give thanks for the generous support we receive every year from our members, both returning and new. Your investment in our efforts is greatly appreciated, and helps us to continue bringing vital programs and resources to existing Butte businesses; those looking to relocate a business to Butte; or those looking to start new businesses here.
In addition, we want to recognize some of the partners we work with towards the best possible economic development outcomes, including our sister organization, Headwaters RC&D; Butte-Silver Bow’s Community Development team; and the Montana Department of Commerce’s Business Attraction team. These partners are just some of the keys to our continued success, and the assistance they provide is critical to our mission.
The guidance we receive from our Board of Directors is also invaluable, and we’ll soon be getting together with them for a strategic planning session in which we’ll chart a course for the months and years ahead. Included in that session will be an exercise to define BLDC’s mission, vision and values.
Thank you for your interest in the Butte Local Development Corporation. Please reach out if you have ideas you’d like to share; need small business assistance or access to capital; are looking to re-locate to Butte; or just want to visit about Butte’s economic future.
Kelly Sullivan – Executive Director
