Winner of IEDC 2017 Gold Excellence in Economic Development in the Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Single Event

4CED won the Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award for its Real People, Real Jobs Campaign, a project in the category Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Single Event. Real People Real Jobs (RPRJ) was a public relations and media campaign launched to fight to save the coal mine from early closure. It was extremely important for local voices to be heard to prevent a potential double in the unemployment rate for the area. The Real People Real Jobs ‘Opportunity Expos’ were also held to assist those individuals that did get laid off due to the downsizing of the plant to find new positions, make connections for retraining, find entrepreneurial opportunities, retire, or find investment resources leading to new opportunities in the area. The initiative is still used to this day.
