About The BIG 5
In the summer of 2015, the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber launched a community-wide engagement process to identify five key initiatives–known as ‘the BIG 5’–to nurture community vitality and stimulate economic prosperity in the Greater Spokane Valley region.
How the five initiatives were identified:
- First, community members in the Greater Spokane Valley were invited to participate online by responding to three questions;
- Then, community members in the Greater Spokane Valley ranked responses gathered through an online ranking process;
- And finally, key stakeholders worked together to drill down the common themes of those responses and identify the five revealing initiatives.
Through this process, 1,081 thoughts and ideas were shared about the strengths and opportunities of the Greater Spokane Valley by hundreds of business owners, workers, elected officials and citizens.
Focused on core values and attributes that draw business and industry to our region, the BIG 5 serves as both the beacon and the compass for economic prosperity in the Greater Spokane Valley region.
