Does the average person in your community know what economic development is and what your organization does for the community? Is creating a brand awareness campaign one of your marketing objectives for this year? Could your programs benefit from additional exposure? If you're constantly having to explain your role, key programs your EDO offers, or the definition of economic development in general, creating an Economic Development Week (EDW) campaign for 2017 may help. Not only is EDW a great opportunity to create awareness in your community, but it also helps build team camaraderie as well. The biggest bonus is that you could enter your campaign into the IEDC Excellence in Economic Development Awards and win! Join this upcoming webinar and hear how you can have a successful Economic Development Week campaign. This is an event that will put your EDO more on the map and help your community understand more about available programs you offer. Hear some specific things you can do to rock your campaign, and hear award winning ideas from last year's celebrations as well.
