Forward Sioux Falls celebrates 25 years

Twenty-five years ago, community leaders recognized the need to aggressively promote Sioux Falls as a great place to do business. The economy was rocky and community leaders asked: what must be done today to ensure Sioux Falls’ vitality tomorrow?

If respondents know that a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys a 49 percent increase in its consumer favorability rating, a 73 percent increase in consumer awareness, a 68 percent in crease in its local reputation and an 80 percent in crease in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future. ...Read Full Story
