Practitioner Network

The Practitioner Network is bringing economic development professionals from a dozen+ cities together for the first time for systematic collaboration on business attraction and expansion.

 

These economic development professionals are coming together monthly to collaborate and coordinate and share leads and information. Work thus far has included efforts to recruit business such as an air mobility company, explore redevelopment opportunities and support expansion for growing local manufacturing companies.
