Companies that bring family wage jobs need educated workers. To address that need, the Mayor’s Professional and Workforce Development Advisory Council was created to facilitate the development of a professional and ready workforce for our business community and specific targeted industries.
Succeeding in today's business environment also requires constant knowledge and professional association. With that in mind, local business people have been coming together twice a year at Meridian City Hall for Meridian Business Day — the community’s largest networking event designed to help Treasure Valley businesses network, socialize and develop positive business relationships. Started in May 2009, Meridian Business Day continues to draw audiences in the hundreds, as well as keynote speakers and workshop leaders from businesses of all types and sizes eager to present motivating addresses and informational workshops.
