During the annual meeting Dr. Marty Romitti and his team from the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) conducted an interactive session. CREC is partnering with SOP to conduct regional economic impact assessment of personnel reductions at Fort Leonard Wood. The interactive session allowed CREC to collect data using a mobile application that attendees downloaded onto their smart phones. Participants were able to provide feedback in real time about the impact of FLW personnel reductions.
Several of the questions helped categorize the background of the attendees. Other questions helped SOP and CREC to understand to what extent attendees believed that FLW personnel reductions seriously impacted quality of life and business climate. They also explored pubic interest in several different mitigation approaches. This data will be incorporated into the much larger economic impact study. Final FLW Polling Report
