Workforce shortages, business migration, government initiatives and rapid technology development bring unprecedented change to communities. These developments will transform your community's economic development ecosystem. Are you ready to lead your community through the change?
This webinar will begin by examining economic development edge theory and how communities can understand some of the expected changes. Participants will learn the difference between core strategies and edge strategies and how to apply these theories to communicate complex changes to boards and community members.

She has a passion for helping others realize their full potential and breaking down social and personal barriers
Ben Eubanks will cap the webinar with research-based recruiting practices that can be used to help leaders with changing workforce needs and populations.
