Staff of the Upjohn Institute worked with the Charlevoix Community Foundation to study the feasibility of a collaborative economic development strategy for the region. Through stakeholder interviews and a community convening, Institute staff examined the networks currently in place among leaders in the county's three communities, presented to stakeholders the findings of this network analysis along with regional data, and facilitated a community conversation about possible collaborative strategies designed to address the challenges facing Charlevoix County.
