Panel: Midwest Inland Port – A Game-Changing Opportunity


MDEA presents a special evening session – a panel presentation and discussion focused on the Midwest Inland Port. What’s going on out there? How big are the economic opportunities? What does it mean to my business?


Panelists are Ryan McCrady, Decatur City Manager; Scott Fredericksen, President of ADM Transportation; and Larry Altenbaumer, Interim President of the Economic Development Corporation of Decatur and Macon County and co-founder of the Grow Decatur movement. Each panelist will provide insights on the Midwest Inland Port from his unique perspective, and then the group will field questions from the audience about specific issues of interest.

This session will be a great opportunity for MDEA members to fully understand the Midwest Inland Port and its impact of Decatur’s economic development
