The Broken Arrow Economic Development Corp. (BAEDC) will be launching a strategic plan and capital campaign, "Amplify Broken Arrow" on July 7 at The Club at Forest Ridge.

The Broken Arrow EDC is an independent organization that serves as a partnership between the Broken Arrow business community, city government and public schools. The EDC focuses on creating wealth, jobs, and economic growth in the community through attraction and retention of businesses, workforce development and education, and collaboration with regional partners.

“Amplify BA will provide the foundation to expand multi-year strategic economic development initiatives to create jobs, attract, retain and expand business, develop our future workforce, foster entrepreneurship and support a growing thriving innovative future for our city,” said Jennifer Jezek, board chair of the BAEDC. 

“Through Amplify BA’s collaborative public-private economic development partnership with the City of Broken Arrow, the Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation, private investors, and other regional and tribal nation partners, our community will be positioned for continued growth and prosperity.”

Jennifer Conway, president and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and EDC, said the city of Broken Arrow has what companies need in order to grow and thrive, but focusing on some key strategies "will assist in the creation of 1,000 direct jobs across targeted industry sectors and will lead to the creation of 1,148 additional indirect jobs.

"After five years, this could result in 2,148 new jobs and generate a total annual payroll of over $129 million dollars.” Conway said.
