Welken will be part of 'Saving North Dakota'

Welken will be part of 'Saving North Dakota'Will discuss depopulation of North Dakota
...
Valley City's own Steve Welken will be one of 28 participants in Thursday's "Saving North Dakota" Roundtable.
It will be a statewide television broadcast from 7 to 9 p.m. and can be watched on WDAY-TV Channel 6.
Welken, 28, says he's not sure why he was chosen and he wasn't sure what he was getting into at first.
"I thought it was going to be a roundtable discussion (to be held on the North Dakota State University campus) with maybe a reporter present," he says with a laugh.When he found out it was going to be televised statewide, he thought maybe he had bitten off more than he could chew.
The panelists, all aged from 21 to 34 years old, will discuss the depopulation in North Dakota and how to stop it.
Welken says it all started with the youth initiative measure that was presented for a vote last November (and defeated), which brought the exodus of North Dakota's youth to the attention of voters.
The Forum of Fargo and Moorhead has been a running series of articles about the problem, and now WDAY-TV will conduct the Thursday night TV production.
Welken, who is chief financial officer and part owner of Grotberg Electric in Valley City, says he isn't sure how the roundtable discussion will go, but he's somewhat prepared to answer a variety of questions.He has some impressions and ideas he's willing to share.
A 1992 graduate of Valley City High School and a '97 graduate of Valley City State University where he earned a degree in business administration, Welken says he likes Valley City and what he's doing.
He has no desire to leave for greener pastures although he's been offered more money at different jobs elsewhere.
"I feel this is where I belong," he says.
Welken had worked as a technical support specialist with Great Plains Software in Fargo for a time prior to his present job.
Welken considers himself lucky to be in the position he's now in at such a young age.
"Everyone's looking for a place where they are comfortable.I'm lucky to have found that early," he says.
He says his job is challenging and it "keeps my motors running."He's part-owner of Grotberg Electric along with eight other businessmen.
Welken is active in the Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce and also serves on the university's foundation board.

"We have 85 workers," said Steve Welken, president for Grotberg Electric of Valley City, N.D. "If I could hire 12 or 15 more experienced guys I would do it tomorrow."
Welken said the problem would grow with the planned construction of the nitrogen plant, ethanol plant and a wind farm in Stutsman County, an addition to John Deere Manufacturing in Valley City and a hospital construction and renovation project in Fargo.
"There are not enough construction workers in North Dakota to do the projects listed," he said.
...
Welken said local businesses could not match the higher wages.
"Until we have the customer base willing to pay that level you can't increase wages," he said.
