It sure has been a while… We are so excited to be back as the 2021 Annual Summit returns to an in-person event this year!

This 2021 Annual Summit is designed to help you re-connect and re-energize while making sure you have the information you need to achieve success in your community.

This year’s conference is built around two days of general sessions and multiple networking opportunities. It ends with a celebration of Ohio’s economic and workforce development community at the 2021 Excellence Awards.  Stay tuned for more details; the final schedule will be released later this month.
