In 2007, the leaders of our area joined together to make the Greater Dubuque area a Destination for Opportunity. We invested our money, developed our plan, and worked together to achieve our goals - that is what we do at Greater Dubuque Development. Today, we are a Destination for Opportunity.

For the past year, I have had the privilege of serving as the Chair for both the Greater Dubuque Development Corporation and the campaign. And what a year it has been.

  • We successfully completed the Destination for Opportunity campaign by creating what many say is one of the strongest metro economies in the U.S.;
  • We launched the campaign, an aggressive five-year strategy to raise $8,500,000 to create what is for the Greater Dubuque region. We have eclipsed that number;
  • We have maintained our focus on our competencies of business retention and expansion, workforce solutions, and national marketing.

You will notice that each of our accomplishments begin with the word “we”. Economic development is a team sport and our investors, Board of Directors, and dedicated staff make up that unique team. Together, we have made our region a Destination for Opportunity and together we will bring what is for our future growth.
