In 2012, WEDC and all of the state’s nine regional planning commissions formed a partnership to provide access to EMSI software throughout the state. Regional planning commissions already provide a variety of data and mapping assistance throughout their region’s so this was a logical partnership.  Although the partnership is for one year, the hope is that this will continue long-term, as well as lead to a formal on-going relationship between WEDC and Wisconsin’s Regional Planning Commissions to better promote economic development in Wisconsin.
