Community Familiarization Tours

One way the Economic Alliance and its community partners help introduce our local assets to new executives is though our Entree Familiarization Tour. Led by a local real estate professional, this biannual evening chartered bus tour and reception builds awareness of amenities like the Greater Kankakee Airport, Kankakee Community College, Olivet Nazarene University, ONU Centennial Chapel - Home of the Kankakee Valley Symphony Orchestra, Perry Farm Park, Riverside Health Fitness Center, Kankakee Country Club and other attractions that contribute to Kankakee County's quality of life.

To register for our next Entree Familiarization Tour, contact Alliance Assistant Sheila Martin.


Quarterly Board Meetings

The Economic Alliance holds quarterly meetings of its board of directors on the second Thursdays of the scheduled months at 7:30 a.m. Meetings are primarily held at Olivet Nazarene University's Weber Leadership Center; however, they occasionally are held offsite in conjunction with industry tours.
