Peru Has Been Recognized as a "Best Community for Business"

Peru received some wonderful recognition this weekend and so did IVAC. Here is a link to the article recognizing Peru as #5 in the state for "Best Communities to do Business In" Peru is the top rated community outside of the Chicago area, beating out every other city in the state including cities like Rockford, Peoria, Sterling, Dekalb, and Bloomington/Normal.

What is really wonderful, is this article gives IVAC credit for this. This is a direct result of Marci's efforts the past two years in getting this region recognized by the movers and shakers in the Chicago area. We have so many assets and she has done a great job in getting this in front of the decision makers in the Midwest. Marci has laid a solid foundation from which Joni can build on. We should feel proud of this recognition and confident that this will soon pay off with some major announcements for the region.

It is also exciting to think of what more can come with the Economic Development Corporation of North Central Illinois starting up. This will be another, even larger and louder voice talking about the merits of our region to an even bigger audience.

Village Presidents, Mayors, and State Legislators stopped by the IVAC office for a Meet and Greet, Monday, March 23rd.
