2013 Community & Economic Development Symposium
GEORGIA TECH HOTEL AND CONFERENCE CENTER ▪ ATLANTA, GA
NOVEMBER 14, 2013
In the Aftermath of the most recent economic downturn, the landscape is evolving dramatically - strengthening some communities, while others continue to weaken. The industry’s organizations and players of yesterday have transformed, consolidated, or diminished entirely. Neighborhood advocates and economic developers today must stay ahead of the curve for their communities to be competitive in the global economy. The 2013 Community & Economic Development Symposium includes plenary sessions, workshops and networking opportunities. Business and community leaders, elected officials, board members and others involved in community redevelopment and economic development across the Southeast will join to find synergy in building wealth in their communities and improving quality of life.
Now that you’ve survived the storm, this event will provide an exciting mix of information and access to help you move forward with renewed capability. With the right tools you can create a template for the future that prepares communities to prosper. Attend the one-day event to:
DISCOVER emerging opportunities
GRASP trends every industry leader needs to know
