Theme: The Future of Physical and Social Infrastructure for Economic Impact

2022 MEDA Annual Conference

  • This event has passed.

Infrastructure plays a crucial role in creating cohesive, economically vibrant communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced communities to rethink the framework, adapting social and physical structures to reflect shifting priorities. The 2022 MEDA Annual Conference will explore these shifts, and their implications on economic developers hoping to increase jobs and community investment.

Decisions made today will impact our economy and our quality of life for decades, so it’s important to get them right. Nationally-recognized keynotes and experts in workforce development, economic equity, small business development, multimodal transportation, broadband, and more will lend perspective and purpose to our efforts ahead.
