Texoma Regional Consortium

About the Texoma Regional Consortium (TRC)

Labor sheds are not identified by state, county, city workforce development areas or other boundaries – they are identified by how far workers are willing to drive.The Texoma Regional Consortium is an informal network of regional leaders designed to engage participating counties in defining a common vision for the region’s future prosperity. The group began with a simple thesis; “labor sheds are not identified by state, county, city workforce development areas or other boundaries – they are identified by how far workers are willing to drive.” In 2007, the TRC engaged the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW) and the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) to help frame key issues and facilitate the discussions of regional leaders towards developing a regional economic growth strategy. That report, Bridging the Red River: A Regional Economic Strategy for the TRC, is displayed below.
