CCEDC Director nominated

Yvonne Johnson nominated for 2021 Women of Influence

The Carbon County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) met on September 27 at Michael’s Big City Steakhouse in Rawlins.

The board approved the agenda and regularly scheduled meeting July 12. The financials were approved next.

Yvonne Johnson, Director of CCEDC gave her report. She said the office operations changed on August 2. Johnson said when they switched from CenturyLink to Spectrum, the CCEDC website was lost because CenturyLink owned the domain and email. A proposal from Cindy Loose of VIP Marketing to get another website created was presented later in the meeting.

Johnson said the Black Ties and Boots Event on August 20 held at the Platte Valley Convention Center in Saratoga was a success. Governor Mark Gordon had been a speaker.

At the end of her report, Johnson said she had been nominated in the Wyoming Business Report’s 2021 Women of Influence.

The Wyoming Business Report (WBR) has been honoring influential women across Wyoming since 2013. They have established 17 categories, covering major industries. Johnson has been nominated in the category of government and economic development.

The 2021 Women of Influence nominees will be featured in the annual Women of Wyoming magazine presented by the Wyoming Business Report. The magazine will be distributed statewide beginning October 16th.

The Wyoming Business Report will announce the 2021 Women of Influence Honorees via a digital presentation on the WBR Women of Influence website at the end of October.

The 2021 Women of Influence Honorees will be featured in the November Wyoming Business Report publication.

After the Director’s Report, the board approved the purchase of a vehicle for the director. Johnson had research done on several choices. The board approved the vehicle Johnson said seemed the best for her needs to travel the county.

The board listened to Loose’s proposal for the website. When she finished, there was brief discussion before her proposal was approved.

Hoffman and Ramsey, CPAs based in Rawlins were chosen for accounting services.

The next scheduled meeting has yet to be announced. The CCEDC recently decided to go from a monthly meeting to quarterly.
