SOREDI is Seriously Playful Approaching 2018 Annual Meeting

Friday, June 29, beginning at 1:00 pm, the SOREDI Annual Meeting will begin as guests meet at Hellgate Jetboat Excursions, before taking boats to the OK Corral.

Thanks to generous sponsors, Banner Bank, City of Grants Pass, Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians, Southern Oregon Sanitation, Pacific Power, Avista Utilities, KTVL News 10, Radio Medford and Grants Pass Broadcasting, guests will enjoy dinner, drinks and a brief program summarizing SOREDI’s activities over the last year.

Guests will also learn what it means to be “Roguediculous!” Roguediculous! is a phrase that captures the spirit of living in this beautiful region, while at the same time exceeding expectations of performance that would be impressive anywhere in the world! In this spirit, local companies will receive SOREDI’s Prosper Awards, for their Tenacity, Ingenuity, Prosperity and Collaboration, while one individual will be honored for the Inspiration they contribute to the region.

“We are wildly serious about business development in Southern Oregon and playfully serious at the same time!” exclaims SOREDI’s Executive Director, Colleen Padilla. “Our responsive and tenacious approach every day helps companies and entrepreneurs take the next step in their business dream. And we find that the businesses and people of Southern Oregon feel the same. We like to say that is Roguediculous!”
