More on Delta Revitalization
One key to economic development or re-development is the community financial institution. Most community banks are in solid shape, financially, but apart from various community sponsorships, they do not appear to be taking part in significant efforts to change the economic fortunes of a region. Executives and Directors from these banks can prove to be wise and influential in efforts to attract new business, expand existing businesses, or help with entreprenurial efforts. If smaller Delta communities are to be succesful, these individuals must take a leadership role, on behalf of their financial institutions and their communities.
