The aim of the campaign is to further NCI’s mission of fostering growth and prosperity in north county, encouraging individuals and businesses to “find their true north” within the area’s vibrant landscape of neighborhoods, commerce and tourism. The campaign was designed to be a grassroots effort, so community stakeholders can easily participate and promote good things happening in north county by sharing their stories of success.

The award-winning Jennings School District Choir performed True North to kick-off the event.  Guests were encouraged to participate in the campaign at #TrueNorth or tag @TrueNorthCounty.  A website was also launched www.TrueNorthCounty.org to continue to share the regions authentic stories and guests were the first to see True North County video, now available on You Tube.
