2019 Economic Development Conference 'Community Prosperity: Threading it Together'
By equipping you with fresh perspectives, insights and tactics, our 4th Annual Economic Development Conference Community Prosperity: Threading it Together left delegates feeling inspired about their critical role in community prosperity and ready to take action. Our conference program looked at the unique challenges in driving economic development faced in both metro and regional areas, including managing public perceptions through the media. During our Q&A-style panel discussion delegates had the opportunity to ask questions and learn from each other’s experiences, and by the end of the day were ready to thread it all together into a draft community prosperity action plan!
