AREA News, Events, News - 07.24.18

McCook Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is holding two information sessions on August 1 at 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Keystone 3rd Floor Training Room to introduce their Mastermind and Internship Programs.

Each session will be about an hour long and food will be included, along with a presentation, and information on the new programs.

Individuals will have a chance to get food and visit with others in attendance at the start of the meeting. Then, Lindsay Hastings, the Executive Director of the Nebraska Human Resources Institute, will be giving the program talking about leadership transitions in rural communities. After the presentation, information will be given on the new MEDC programs.

Both programs work to help develop human capital in the McCook area. The mastermind program is looking to establish 2-3 groups of 8-12 people that meet weekly to invest in each other. Group meetings take place either before work or over the lunch hour and will include book discussion, leadership development, and the opportunity to grow together.

The internship program builds on the success of the Rural Futures Interns hosted in McCook the last three years. MEDC will work to connect local high school and college students with area businesses who are looking for summer interns. MEDC will also provide training and follow up with the interns throughout the summer to make it a meaningful experience.

The event and food are free, but MEDC requests you make reservations by July 30 by contacting Angela at angela@mccookne.org or 308-345-1200.
