Raffle tickets will be included with registration fees; early registrations will receive incrementally more raffle tickets. Over $3,000 in raffle prizes have been donated including tickets to OSF, Oregon Cabaret and Britt, along with great opportunities for fun like a backyard zipline kit from Zipline Gear, round of golf and dinner for 4 at Eagle Point Golf Course, and a rafting trip for two with Morrison’s Rogue Wilderness Adventures.

The 2016 annual meeting will set the stage for SOREDI to enter its 30th year as the region’s only economic development agency established to help businesses launch, relocate, and prosper. Two guest speakers are already secured including Matthew Bernard with Darex and Melissa Brandao, inventor of HerdDogg.

We hope to create greater awareness and connection with the many prized companies we have in own backyards.” In addition, the agency will hear parting thoughts from Ron Fox, who is retiring after 10 years of service as Executive Director.
