Join the Vision 2020 Citizen Advisory Panel

Such a great invitation to the citizens in our community. Consider applying to serve and share your opinion. Your voice counts!


Vision 2020 is looking to fill its Citizen Advisory Panel with enthusiastic, smart, Northeast Indiana citizens.

The Citizen Advisory Panel, or CAP, will be a sounding board for ideas; it will act as the voice for the region. 

Right now, Vision 2020 Action Teams are busy coming up with ideas developed from the visions and strategies at the Regional Economic Summit in June of 2010. The Action Teams represent the five Vision 2020 pillars of 21st Century Talent, Competitive Business Climate, Entrepreneurship, Infrastructure and Quality of Life. After the Action Teams have fleshed out ideas for improving the region and come up with basic plans for how to put it in place, they will be presenting to the CAP for approval on their direction for the region.

We’re looking for about 50 to 100 individuals who could meet 6 to 10 times throughout the year. The group should be made up of people from throughout the region: Adams, Allen, DeKalb, LaGrange, Huntington, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties. We’d also like to have people who are diverse in their gender, race, age and interests.

Remember that Declaration of Outrageous you signed months ago on a sunny June day? Well this is a chance to pull that pledge out of hibernation and put it to work by joining CAP.
