Lansing has been experiencing population growth in recent years, but what are the reasons, and how can we do better and attract more talent? We explore these questions with Eric Dimoff, Director of Marketing and Communications at Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Chris Sell, founder of Lansing 5:01.

The city of Lansing has experienced growth for the third straight year. Mayor Virg Bernero has said the city's "aggressive approach to attracting new job-creating investments and making Lansing a more attractive place to live, work, visit and play" helped generate this growth.

The Central Michigan chapter of the Public Relations Society of America recently held a panel discussion about the efforts being made in Lansing to retain and attract talent, business and investment.
