Here's how Community Champions will increase our region's population

10 Nov 2016


Personal references are powerful.

Think about it. You’re more likely to read a book, watch a movie, buy a product or apply for a job if someone you know and trust recommends it directly to you.

That’s why the Iowa Lakes Corridor believes more people will move to our region if we have Community Champions promoting the outstanding jobs, housing and incredible recreational opportunities that the Iowa Lakes Corridor has to offer.

Last week, we explained the goal behind Five by Five - 5 percent population growth in 5 years – and what it would look like. We then asked you to sign up as a Community Champion.

Community Champions' roles in Five by Five

Community Champions will be vital to Five by Five’s success. They will be the ones connecting the people they know to the opportunities found in the Iowa Lakes Corridor region.

This is how:

  • Community Champions will talk to their friends primarily via email, text messaging and social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) about jobs, housing and ways to have fun in the Iowa Lakes Corridor. The Corridor will provide tailored videos, images and other relevant information to Community Champions based on who they’re communicating with.
  • When someone wants more information about a job or housing opportunity, Community Champions will have additional resources provided by the Corridor to help make that opportunity a reality.
  • And the process repeats.
  • Community Champions will also earn recognition for helping our communities grow – and can win rewards!
