Economic development is a critical component of any community's strategic plan. It is important that public officials across the municipal structure understand the intricacies of the local, state and global economy, and develop a strong and successful economic development foundation for their community’s future.

This municipal economic development workshop is unique in that it is geared to ALL within a municipality who impact economic development, and is designed to get everyone working collaboratively.

Additionally, attendees will receive information about research, marketing and general economic development practices, as well as resources and tools available to achieve economic development results.
