The Consulting Team
The Tahoe Prosperity Center issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) and selected Integrated Communications Strategies, LLC (ICS) to engage local business people and associations, concerned citizens, governments, education, environmental and community organizations to develop strategies and tactical action plans to diversify Tahoe’s economic base, backed by the latest data and evidence.
What we’re most looking forward to facilitating in a two-state, five-county region comes directly from ICS:
“Diversifying tourism and recreation-based economies like Tahoe is a decades-old challenge that many communities in the U.S. and abroad have tackled, with some success stories to inspire us. But experience tells us that what works in one community, works in that community precisely because of its unique history, system and political constructs, area leadership, public and private sector actors, the resources available (or not), and sometimes simply good luck or good timing. We believe the diversification strategy for Tahoe in the next three to five years can be inspired by others, but it must be designed and enacted in a way that matches Tahoe’s unique socio-economic context and systems, and include greater equity and inclusion.”
