Course Description

The function of economic development is often complex, and understanding your role in the process will be key both to the success of your career, and to the overall success of economic development in your community. There is no one way to do community economic development so each community, organization or volunteer will approach it differently.

This course will provide you with a good foundation of knowledge, tools and resources for working within community economic development and with elected officials, economic development practitioners, and stakeholders.
