South Dakota’s Governor Daugaard to Join Governor Mead’s Business Forum

Governor Matt Mead is pleased to announce that South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard will participate in Governor Mead’s Business Forum on Nov. 19th in Cheyenne. Governor Daugaard will address the forum during the afternoon of the two-day forum’s first day.  He will speak about essential economic development strategies. Governor Daugaard is South Dakota’s 32nd Governor.

“Governor Daugaard is a great speaker and has led significant changes to South Dakota’s economic development programs. He has also created a new plan for workforce development in his state and all of this has resulted in strong growth,” Governor Mead said. “We are seeing similar growth and similar challenges in Wyoming, and I am most grateful that Governor Daugaard is able to join the Business Forum and share his economic development strategies.”

“I appreciate Governor Mead’s invitation to the Business Forum and look forward to seeing him in Cheyenne,” said Governor Daugaard. “South Dakota and Wyoming have a lot in common. We have similar histories and principles, we are faced with similar challenges, and both Governor Mead and I have made economic development a top priority in our states.”

This year’s forum is the second time (the first time was November 2011) that Governor Mead has partnered with the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation to bring top-notch speakers together to discuss economic development strategies and business success stories.

The second Governor Matthew H. Mead Business Forum will take place on November 19th and 20th in Cheyenne at Little America. For more information and to register go to
