Radius Indiana Brings Economic Development Course to the Region in 2017
Community leaders in southern Indiana have a new opportunity to hone economic leadership skills.
 
Bedford, Ind. (Nov. 14, 2016) — Radius Indiana today announced its new regional economic development conference for community leaders coming to the French Lick Springs Resort in March 2017.
 
Attendees at the two-and-a-half day Radius Indiana Economic Development for Community Leadership Program will participate in educational sessions on relevant topics such as real estate development, business attraction, workforce, marketing, business finance and incentives, and entrepreneurship.
 
“We have talked to so many of the leaders in our region, and they have all indicated their commitment to improving the economic vitality of the places they live. So Radius made a commitment to bring a short, affordable course to the region to allow them all to keep up-to-date on how they can be effective partners with their local economic development professionals,”
Radius Indiana President Jeff Quyle said.  
 
Speakers from the state agencies, site selection companies, secondary education institutions and financial firms will share best practices and offer perspectives on local and regional economic strategies. Topics are focused on the day-to-day functions of economic development, and are designed to help leaders keep the needs of economic development at the forefront of their efforts as they return to their daily responsibilities.  
 
Radius Indiana’s vision is to help communities grow strong, working groups of local leaders versed in economic development who can affect policies and strategies for intentional business growth and skills-driven workforce development.
 
Registration for the Radius Indiana Economic Development for Community Leadership Program, which takes place March 28, 29 and 30, will be available beginning December 2016 through the Radius website, radiusindiana.com. Registration for leaders in the Radius eight-county region is $400, and $475 for those who live outside the region. 
 
Radius also plans to make several scholarships available from its own office as well as area utilities and banks. Local Economic Development Organizations and those interested in attending are encouraged to contact the Radius Indiana office to learn more about scholarship opportunities in their area.
