2016-17 ANNUAL REPORT
The First year of our strategic plan saw immediate success in all four objective areas. Despite a looming budget shortfall in state government and an uncertain economy, trying to gain support for the plan was a challenge. However, the business community rallied around Envision 2026 and the results for the first year speak for themselves.
In 2017, we made great strides in addressing some our infrastructure problems. We also made improvements to our state’s liability system – with Montana rising from 34th to the 27th best state legal system according to the Institute for Legal Reform of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber also engaged in workforce development with the passage of an apprenticeship tax credit and the establishment of dual enrollment pathways. Finally, we embarked on helping develop the future Montana business leaders through our entrepreneurship initiatives.
