BEDFORD, Ind. (Jan. 14, 2018) – Radius Indiana announced today that registration is now open for its third annual regional economic development conference for community leaders coming to the French Lick Resort March 26-28, 2019.
Attendees at the two-and-a-half day Radius Indiana Economic Development for Community Leadership Program will participate in educational sessions on relevant topics such as real estate development, strategic planning, business retention and attraction, workforce, marketing, business finance and incentives, and community development.
“With the development of our new strategic plan, we now have an even larger focus on regional economic leadership and education,” said Radius Indiana President and CEO Jeff Quyle. “This leadership program allows us to bring together a very diverse group of people who are able to share and learn so much from each other. I am very glad we are able to host this for the third consecutive year.”
Speakers from state agencies, site selection companies, secondary education institutions, and financial firms will share best practices and offer perspectives on local and regional economic strategies. Topics are focused on the day-to-day functions of economic development and are designed to help leaders keep the needs of economic development at the forefront of their efforts as they return to their daily responsibilities.
“I found the speakers to be highly knowledgeable in the topics they discussed. I appreciated the casual atmosphere to allow interaction with all involved,” said Justin Green, Salem City Council. “I would recommend the course to any elected official as a window into how others are engaging in the economic development field.”
Radius also plans to make several scholarships available from its own office as well as area utilities and banks. Local Economic Development Organizations and those interested in attending are encouraged to contact the Radius Indiana office to learn more about scholarship opportunities in their area.
