As you know, EDA is committed to enhancing your professional development so we’d like to tell you about a few opportunities:

1. There is just one Webinar remaining in the EDA Lunchinar Program:

Held Wednesday October 30, 12-1 pm (MST), click on the link to read about "50 Shades of Engagement-Powerful Strategies to Engage Community Members and Employees in Community Building."

The EDA Lunchinar Program is a series of Webinars delivered over the noon hour on a variety of topics. Charmaine Hammond of Hammond International hosts the series.

2. Gather a group of your colleagues and book EDA’s Business and Investment Attraction Course. EDA members, you get a discount if you book before the end of the year!

By hosting this course you can decide who’s at the table to ensure your team is on the same page when it comes to delivering economic development in your region. This course will increase your understanding of the importance of business investment and attraction as a strategy in economic development; you’ll see how business investment attraction can benefit your community; and you’ll understand what encourages existing businesses to expand their operations.

Email: admin@edaalberta.ca to arrange to take this course.

3. In less than a month EDA’s ONLINE course "Economic Development-Establishing the Foundation" begins. Register with the University of Calgary.

The course runs November 5-December 3, 2013 for a total of 15 hours.
