We had an incredible turnout at our 2022 Annual Meeting and enjoyed spending time with all of you! Annual Meeting is our time to celebrate our accomplishments, but more importantly, it is our opportunity to celebrate you. Without our members and partners nothing we do could be accomplished. Since 1999 Maury Alliance has helped to grow Maury County through business opportunities and economic development and we look forward to many more years of serving you and this wonderful county we call home.
Annual Meeting was made possible this year with the help of our wonderful community sponsors: Columbia Power & Water Systems, Harris Janitorial Services, Morning Pointe Senior Living, Mid-Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic, Tristar Bank, and Zion Christian Academy.
Key Highlights from 2021
From an organizational standpoint, we had a record year for jobs announcements in 2021 and are already off to a strong start this year.
We experienced strong membership growth, now exceeding over 550 members which is the highest level we have seen in quite some time.
We were able to keep over $41,000 dollars in the local economy (supporting our small businesses) through our local first gift card program, which continues to grow each year.
Community highlights since 2014:
- Population: increase of over 16% (projected to grow by 11% over the next 5 years)
- Maury has been in the top 5-6 fastest growing counties each year
- Maury has been in the top 5 for Incoming investment each year; Currently we are #1
- Maury has been in the top 5 for new building permits; Currently we are #1
- Average wage increased by 22% to just over $50,000
- Median Household income increased by 24% to $67,000
Clearly, Maury County is at a transition point. With transition comes excitement…and some uncertainty. But also, opportunity!
While job creation and our more traditional member programing will absolutely remain a focus of our plan of work, we have an opportunity to take advantage of our unique position, recalibrate our efforts, and double down on our strategic vision of creating thoughtful and sustainable growth to make Maury County the best place to live.
