Registration now open for Radius Indiana elected official economic development course
BEDFORD, Ind. (Nov. 14, 2022) — Radius Indiana hosts a free, region-wide economic development course for elected officials Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the French Lick Resort Meeting and Event Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The course is designed for both incumbent and newly elected officials.
Radius created the intensive, one-day seminar, which will specifically target the needs of elected officials, as an extension of its annual Economic Development for Community Leaders Program.
Experts from across the state will provide attendees insight and strategies in areas such as:
- Site Development with Chelsey Manns, Manns Consulting;
- Workforce with Jim Plump & Jackie Hill, Jackson County Industrial Development Corporation;
- Incentives with Matt Eckerle, Baker Tilly;
- Business Retention & Expansion with Jason Hester, Greater Columbus Economic Development Corporation;
- Marketing and Branding with Jason Hester;
- Entrepreneurship/Small Business Development with Blaine Parker, Radius Indiana.
Question and answer sessions will take place during both the morning and afternoon to allow participants the opportunity to dive deeper into the course’s focus areas.
“When I first took office as a county commissioner, I thought I understood how to help my local economy, but I found out after I took office that the economic development field is more complex than I realized,” said Radius CEO and President Jeff Quyle. “I’d like to help other elected officials learn some of the insider perspectives so that they can increase their efficiency. All elected officials want what’s best for their community, and this seminar will help them pursue that more effectively.”
The course is made possible through the generous support of Radius Indiana’s regional utility partners, who will participate in a panel discussion during lunch, including Indiana Municipal Power Agency, Duke Energy and Hoosier Energy.
Registration for the course is now open. Interested participants click here for the free course.
