The Ohio Economic Development Association’s latest offering will help you brush up on your skills and learn about economic impact models and tools. And, you’ll see the real-world application of both.

This workshop is for economic development professionals with all levels of experience as well as elected and appointed officials. Whether you are new to the profession or a seasoned pro, the Understanding Economic Impact Analysis workshop will help you take your skills and knowledge to a new level. Even better, you are encouraged to invite the elected and appointed officials who play a key role in economic development decision making in your community or organization. We encourage you to bring along your: city managers, mayors, county commissioners, and township trustees and have them learn more about these important tools alongside you.

Specifically, this workshop will cover economic impact analysis as a common tool used to explain the impact of new firm location, the loss of a major employer or the impact of a new development. Economic impact analysis shows the direct benefit of job creation (or loss), and the impact on the local supply chain and broader economy in terms of employment, income, and economic output. This workshop reviews the common economic impact models: IMPLAN, RIMS-II, and REMI, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.
