Economic Development Leaders

Building thriving communities can only be accomplished when businesses have the talent they need to complete. Attracting new companies and jobs to our regions is dependent on having both a workforce with the right skills and the educational infrastructure to develop a pipeline for future growth. Relationships between economic development, workforce development, and education are critical to fostering growth and increasing the impacts of investments in business success.

The Forum 2017 is the one place where economic development leaders can share knowledge and begin or continue key conversations with strategic partners to define the challenges and shape opportunities that impact the growth of businesses, regions, and our collective economic health.
