IEDC Conferences


In a global economy, you never know where the next opportunity to advance your career or community will come from. We give you the chance to form and foster relationships with economic developers from around the world – and the next county over.

Our technical and annual conferences will not only connect you with others who share your goals and experiences, but keep you in the forefront of the profession by providing access to and insights from community leaders, industry experts, and federal policy makers.

 

2021 Leadership Summit
March 15-16

Greater Together: Investing in Communities, People, and Innovation Ecosystems

Communities are facing complex challenges and opportunities shaped by technological disruptions, shifting labor markets, and persistent social, economic, and geographic disparities. The added events of the past several months have created even more challenging environments, but may also bring opportunities for lasting and inclusive growth. The 2021 Leadership Summit will focus on generating conversations, ideas and actions for leaders in economic development to step boldly into the future with vision and confidence.

Please note: Attendance is limited to senior managers of economic development organizations and Certified Economic Developers (CEcDs).
