South Bend – Elkhart Regional Partnership Launches Community Survey


SOUTH BEND, Ind. (September 17, 2019) -- The South Bend - Elkhart Regional Partnership, in collaboration with numerous community organizations, is launching a Brand Development Project for the region. The goal of this project is to develop a brand and marketing strategy which residents, businesses, community organizations, and local government can collectively support in order to attract talent, companies, and investment to the region. There is a strong appetite to join together to establish a shared community vision, which can collectively be supported and built upon over time.

As part of the project, the South Bend - Elkhart Regional Partnership and organizations from across the region are conducting a survey about living and working in the region. Survey insights, along with stakeholder meetings, statistical reports and workshops, are key to developing a compelling positioning strategy and brand for the region.

You can get involved today by taking the following survey - it should take approximately 10 minutes to complete - and earn a chance to make a $100 donation in your name to the charity of your choice. We assure you that any information you give will remain confidential.

We appreciate your valuable time and thoughts, and promise to learn from your answers and make the region an even better place to live and work in the future.
