MEMPHIS, TN - Jonesboro and northeast Arkansas are to be included in a comprehensive analysis of the labor market in the greater Memphis region.

The Memphis Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Memphis Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) will oversee the survey of a region which includes 52 counties in northeast Arkansas, north Mississippi and west Tennessee.  The REDC is a partnership of state, economic development, and workforce training representatives throughout the region working together to help employers successfully compete in a global market.

"To succeed we need the help of businesses and individuals in the community," said Melissa Rivers, Director of Regional Development for the Memphis Chamber.  "Our goal is to position the area for future growth and business success.  Your response to our survey is a very important part of this process."

Survey teams will be at various locations throughout the region conducting in-person interviews with area residents.  All individual responses will be kept confidential.

More information is available by contacting Rivers at 901-543-3559.
