Organizing for Success: Regional Economic Development
Author: Clark Welch

Regional strategies for economic development link rural, suburban, and urban areas, helping them to share resources, enhance marketing, increase the profile of labor sheds, and build capacity.

EDRP’s new research examines how regional approaches to economic development fill a void within the traditional economic development landscape, and how EDOs can effectively implement regional strategies within the communities they serve. Additionally, this research explains why economic competitiveness and business climate improvements are greatly enhanced by organizing and executing regional strategies.

What you'll learn:

  • The benefits and challenges associated with regional economic development
  • Best practices for operational functions of regional economic development organizations, including governance and funding
  • How to communicate the value of regional strategies to individual communities
