2020 OEDA BR&E and Workforce & Talent Courses to Go On Line
OEDA has announced that the next two Core Courses —- Business Retention and Expansion and the NEW Workforce and Talent Courses —- be conducted live On-Line.
The Business Retention and Expansion Course, taught by Erik Collins and Laith Wardi, will take place July 23 and 24. The BR&E course focuses on best practices and Ohio examples of an economic development organization’s business retention programs.
The new Workforce and Talent Course, taught by Lisa Patt McDaniel, will take place September 17 and 18, 2020. The Workforce and Talent Course, which was developed in response to feedback from the OEDA membership, will cover programs, practice and best practices in workforce development and talent acquisition.
To accommodate the changing circumstances of the economic development profession, OEDA, like many organizations, has transitioned its professional training programs to on On-Line Format. This has included the Ohio Basic Economic Development Course, the Real Estate Development Course, the Finance & Incentives Course, and the Site Selection / Site Development Courses to an On-Line Format.
OEDA members who are interested in registering for more than one of the remaining Core Courses can do so at a discounted multiple-course rate.

What is also indisputable is that the time for change is now.read more
