OEDA Launches COVID-19 Resource Center
OEDA has launched a COVID-19 Resource Center on its website. The Resource Center provides Ohio’s economic development community with resources to help practitioners best serve their business community during the COVID-19 outbreak. OEDA will do all that we can to provide factual information and helpful resources you need as leaders in those efforts.
You can click HERE or go to the “Get The Latest” tab and click on the COVID-19 Resources in the list of helpful links on the far left side of the page.
There is both an overwhelming number of questions AND an overwhelming amount of information. OEDA will use its COVID-19 Resource Center as the clearinghouse for that information to avoid flooding your inbox with multiple communications each day. We believe one of the most helpful roles OEDA can play is curator; sifting through and summarizing the vast amount of information so you can focus on what you need as economic development professionals.
OEDA is also developing a webinar series around how economic developers can be effective during the COVID-19 outbreak and what they can do now to be prepared to hit the ground running after restrictions are lifted. The webinars will be complimentary for members.
We encourage you to check our COVID-19 site frequently for new information and resources. Also, be sure to add email@example.com and the domain ohioeda.com to your list of safe senders to ensure you receive this important information.
