SIOR Foundation Supports the SIOR NW Regional Conference
Over 40 SIORs, Sponsors and spouses attended the recent Northwest Regional event in Park City, Utah. The event started with an opening reception with comments by Vanessa Herzog, SIOR RD Northwest, and Trigger Reital, SIOR, followed by an update from Mark Duclos, SIOR President. Aaron Barnard, SIOR Foundation Past President, gave a quick Foundation update along with showing a video highlighting the recent Foundation programs. The main event was an encompassing presentation by Teresa Foxley of EDCUtah. Her presentation discussed the rapid growth and attractiveness of the “Silicon Slopes” of the Wasatch valley. She shared the youth and growth of the workforce in the area and the relative affordability of doing business
in the area as opposed to coastal and other top MSAs across the country. While the information was specific to Utah, the concepts and trends are essential items for SIORs in all markets. Hats off to Vanessa Herzog and Amy Robitaille and their committee for putting on an excellent event.
