2019 MEDA Fall Conference

MEDA presents the 2019 Fall Conference – Defining Your Community Identity –  in partnership with the Rural Economic Development Session, sponsored by PNC Bank.

Each community has a unique vibe with distinct commercial centers designed, organized and promoted to create a sense of livability.  Economic Developers are charged with identifying and enhancing those unique features to help the community attract new businesses that seek to locate and grow there.  But, how do you assess your community, strategically plan for and attract the right balance of business, entertainment, and services to meet your community’s needs?

Our Fall Conference will discuss these issues and take a very focused look at the rural communities in Maryland that are positioned to provide the right mix of economic development strategies for livability and growth.
