Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) is pleased to offer its next Marketing Masters Webinar, titled Economic Gardening and Community Leadership. As in the past, EDA members and friends are eligible for preferred pricing.
Effective economic gardening takes strong community leadership support. What is the role of community leaders in economic development? How can they best support the economic development effort and, in particular, the growth of local businesses?
Through a conversation with Rob Pochert, CEcD, EDFP Economic Development Program Manager, we will learn about Beaverton, Oregon’s Pilot Economic Gardening program begun in 2008. Find out what caused them to pursue economic gardening, how they have gone about it, and the next steps they plan to take. Rob will also discuss the State of Oregon’s recent economic gardening initiative.
The intention of this professional development opportunity is to discuss the ways in which community leaders can support the economic development professional in the economic gardening effort. Please join us along with your community leaders for this informative look at growing your economy.
