Industry Tour of Grants Pass Area Businesses Announced by SOREDI

SOREDI offers members a behind-the-scenes Industry Tour of Dutch Bros Coffee, MasterBrand Cabinets, The Glass Forge Gallery and Studio and First Call Resolution

Medford OR –  SOREDI members are invited to attend the next Industry Tour, which will feature a behind-the-scenes tour of Dutch Bros Coffee, MasterBrand Cabinets, The Glass Forge Gallery and Studio and First Call Resolution. This exclusive members-only event is designed to give participants the opportunity to learn about the diversity of businesses based in this two-county region. While touring these interesting locations, participants often learn about hidden employment opportunities and have the ability to network with other SOREDI members.

“One of the most important functions of these Industry Tours is the development of closer cooperation between the public and private sector,” says Kathy Trautman, Business Development Manager at SOREDI. “We always make sure to include school superintendents, guidance counselors, and educators so that they can get a first-hand look at the careers available to their students before and after they graduate.” Trautman continues, “It just helps all of us get to know more about all our region has to offer regarding career opportunities, as well as connecting as a community.”

The tour will take place from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, Thursday, September 29. Participants will meet at 8:00 am at the Holiday Inn Express, 105 NE Agness Avenue in Grants Pass. The cost to SOREDI Members is $40. These tours are members-only events, made possible by co-sponsors Regence BlueCross BlueShield and US Bank, with support from Business Oregon. Lunch at Climate City Brewing Company in downtown Grants Pass is included.
