Just last year, in partnership with the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, we secured seven projects that translated into 1,289 jobs, nearly two million square feet of commercial space, more than $64 million in annual payroll and $287.15 million in capital investment. In 2011, we secured 15 projects that translated into 3,500 jobs, 3.5 million square feet of commercial space, $210 million in annual payroll and $600 million in capital investment. Because of our investors, the Chamber's economic development department is able to be proactive in business recruitment, retention, international business development and workforce development efforts.
As we kick off the Forward Fort Worth campaign - previously known as the Controlling Our Destiny campaign - we invite you to join our group of investors by making an annual contribution towards the economic vitality of Fort Worth.
