Over 50 Economic Development Professionals joined together in Juab County for the Spring 2017 meeting of the Utah Alliance for Economic Development. The meeting started on a cool, rainy night in Eureka as some of the group took a ghostly tour of the "old town." Mayor Nick Castleton was a great tour guide, sharing stories about the town, ghosts and the old buildings we saw there.

The next morning, the rest of the group joined in for a half day of meetings and networking. One of the highlights of the meeting was a presentation from Rick Nelson, who was a Survivor participant from Utah. Our takeaway from the presentation: Realty TV isn't exactly REALTY!
