IEDC’s Leadership Summit is one of our annual “go-to” events. This year’s theme, “Strategic Partnerships for Economic Development,” is sure to offer a wealth of valuable insights. We have seen an increased emphasis on partnerships, in regionalism, workforce development, and funding, throughout the country, and know what an important topic this is for economic development professionals. Principal Andy Coe even wrote¬†an article about¬†“10 Tips for Effective Community Partnerships” for EDNow.

If you’d like to learn more about the trends in strategic partnerships impacts economic development work and funding we’re seeing throughout the country, and how we’re leveraging these trends to secure increased funding for our clients, then be sure to stop by our booth to visit with one of our team members! Principals Rick Kiernan and Mark Bergethon, as well as Partners Cheryl Hardy and Jim Hizer, CEcD, will all be in attendance. You can also email us at to schedule a one-on-one meeting in advance.
