NLC to Hold Regional Seminar on Economic Development

March 2, 2012
On May 17-19, the National League of Cities (NLC) is hosting a regional seminar in Manhattan Beach on "Formulating Effective Economic Development Policy." Mayors and Council Members who participate will be eligible to receive credit toward the Mayors and Council Members Academy leadership levels.
The NLC seminar will focus on strategies to help local leaders build better partnerships with their business community and economic development stakeholders, leveraging new technology for marketing and rethinking the tools and processes for supporting small and large business with these sessions:
  • Marketing Your City
  • A Business-Friendly City
  • Economic Development Policy and Community Strategy

Full event information, including how to register, agenda, speakers and detailed session information has been posted on NLC's website.

The League has been actively participating in exploring new economic development tools, including testifying at last week's joint Senate hearing and forming a new task force.
