To actively engage current and potential businesses to market DeWitt County to attract commerce and encourage job growth. DCDC promotes ideas for local business expansion and workforce development, and provides direction for new and existing businesses or commerce seeking resources to enhance business operations.
DeWitt County Development Council (DCDC) accepted the resignation of long-time board president Kevin Myers during the May 2017 executive board meeting, ending more than 10 years of valued service.
Myers first became involved in DeWitt County economic efforts in 2006 on a steering committee of local business leaders. He eventually took the reins of what would become the current DCDC organization in 2007. Since that time, Myers has been a driving force to help shape the county’s economic outlook.
“He’s been the face of economic development efforts in our county for a decade, so he will be missed,” said DCDC board member Curt Homann. “Last year especially, he had to weather some tough storms to keep the organization moving forward, so now it’s up to us to keep the momentum going.”
Myers chose to retire, in an effort to focus more on his role as managing principal of Chastain & Associates, an engineering firm based in Decatur. Despite his departure, Myers said he will be an active participant for economic growth in the county.
DCDC is a valued source of information relating to projects, processes and resources that foster economic growth in commerce and workforce development in DeWitt County.
