The Spring Economic Development Toolbox

This yearly event will be held on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West Hotel in Lansing, Michigan.

This event has sessions on a variety of components for economic development success: new tools and programs, updates to existing tools and programs, best practices, marketing, unique ideas, skill-building, and leadership.

Both state and local professionals join together to take a fresh look at the components comprehensively, from both an informational and implementation aspect. Breakout sessions are held throughout the program so that attendees can choose the programs that are the most important to their area of responsibility.

In order to develop the best conference, a volunteer committee of MEDA members meets regularly to plan The Spring Economic Development Toolbox and other MEDA membership programs. Click here to learn more about the Education Committee.
