Chamber executive: student retention key to addressing North Dakota workforce shortage

(Fargo, ND) -- The head of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce is talking about one component that she says is key to solving North Dakota's workforce shortage. 

"We've got five, seven universities in our region alone. If we can retain 'x' percentage of those students that's how we're going to be successful as we go forward," said Shannon Full.  

Full also says it will take a public private partnership to help create conditions that encourage or incentivize young people to remain in the state.
