    Topic:   Community’s Develop with Small Businesses
    How can a group of citizens or town officials get a clear direction from citizens with regard to which industry and biz they want to create wealth in their community  and that they are willing to support?   How does a community intersect with the State who is trying to attract businesses and find a match?  How does it not just get a business forced on it to fill a hole?
    How do chambers of commerce play in this game?  How do/can they think about how they are serving the development of the region?  How do regions go about attracting the small businesses as well as the LLBean’s, Fairchild Semiconductor, LNGs etc?  How does the region create the image, of its current and future business climate?  How does it convince its citizenry that this IS the direction?

    Topic: How Do I Really Do Market Research?

    What are some of the issues people need to think about as they consider marketing their business?
    How do these issues roll into the basic concept of what marketing is?
    How do people take the concept of marketing to become an action?  Or is there basic strategy that applies to just about every business – small, very small or even medium sized?
