In 2007, the Regional Economic Development Network participated in the Leadership Institute's "Building the Regional Team" speakers series. Six events brought our local economic developers face-to-face with some of the nation's most renowned site selection and economic development consultants.
Each of our speakers were kind enough to allow us to post a copy of their presentations below. The 2007 presentations will remain through the end of 2008.
