We’re incredibly excited to be in the middle of our 2019 membership drive and need your support to continue our efforts of growing Buttes economy. For 50 years the BLDC has served as Butte’s lead economic development organization and has a list of accomplishments that wouldn’t fit in this email.
Most recently we’ve attracted over $1m in grant funds to local businesses, hosted over 12 site selectors visits and were successful in siting FCR, our community's newest large employer that will have over 350 employees by 2020. These efforts are what drives our organization, and we greatly appreciate your support in doing the work we love for Montana’s best community.
Tomorrow is the last day to submit nominations for the 2019 Butte Elevated Awards! The Butte Local Development Corporation established the Butte Elevated Awards for the purpose of recognizing and honoring outstanding Butte-Silver Bow businesses and citizens for their contributions to our community. The 2019 recipients will be announced and honored at the Butte Local Development Corporation’s Annual Dinner to be held on December 5th at the Copper King Hotel & Convention Center.

Congratulations to BLDC Member, FCR, on their Ribbon Cutting with the Butte Chamber of Commerce. We are grateful for your investment in our community!
The Oregon-based call center FCR held the ceremony outside its location in the Butte Plaza Mall where it opened operations earlier this year in the former JC Penney store.
The service center has more than 200 employees and is looking to hire more for the holiday season.
“I’m excited to be part of the mall and its revitalization. The hope is that this kicks off more stores and more companies to come in here. We provide jobs for 400 people by next spring, and so I think that's a captive audience,” said FCR Site Manager Stephanie Marshall.
People can apply for positions at the call center at the FCR website .
