Your Partner in Growing Your Community

21 Fall NKE GraphicFall Networking and Knowledge Exchange

This event will be held on Thursday, October 14th from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

About the Exchange

MEDA's Networking and Knowledge Exchanges started when MEDA's Membership Committee made it a goal to increase engagement for the Association after members sought more time for networking at events.

Economic developers and their partners in community development, talent development, environmental, housing, etc., are invited to this casual afternoon of meeting and mingling. To add to the value, you will go home with information that will help you do your job more efficiently and effectively, which is MEDA's Mission and Vision for you.
