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 successful economic development foundation for their community's future.
To help Connecticut's public officials facilitate such efforts, a collaboration of partners including the Connecticut Economic Resource Center, Inc. (CERC), the Connecticut Economic Development Association (CEDAS), the Connecticut Main Street Center and the MetroHartford Alliance - has developed a unique municipal economic development course.
The free 2-hour workshop is geared to ALL within a municipality who impact economic development, and is designed to get everyone working collaboratively. The curriculum will answer the following questions:
* What is economic and community development?
* Who is responsible for economic development?
* What role does/should your "economic development team" and community play?
* How do you convince your residents and businesses of the importance of economic development?
* How is your municipal economy impacted by the state, region and global economy?
Additionally, attendees will receive information about research, marketing and general economic development practives as well as resources and tools available to achive economic development results.
