  • Secure partnerships and sponsorships with businesses to fund local efforts
  • Utilize business members from governors’ councils as spokespersons for the campaign (video, news media interviews, press releases, blogs and social media posts)

  • Use the JAO partners as the field team that contributes to large scale goals pertaining to jobs and the economy
