“Go for the Gold – Champions in Economic Development”
2015 EDCC Spring Conference
The 2015 EDCC Spring Conference: Champions in Economic Development was held in beautiful Steamboat Springs at The Steamboat Grand. The conference ran from April 29th through May 1, 2015. The overarching purpose of the spring conference is professional development for economic developers across the state of Colorado. The EDCC Spring Conference provided an opportunity for attendees to learn best practices, new programs, recognize excellence and network with friends and colleagues. Through breakout and general sessions, economic developers were able to get a better handle on home-based workers, the aviation economy, marketing strategies, the marijuana industry and gain a multifaceted understanding of many other influences facing our economies. Attendees left with a broad network of resources to assist in the development of their cities and counties across the state, fostering economic growth in Colorado and beyond.
We celebrated our brilliant EDIE Award Winners and we also marked the launch of the six-track Professional Development Program, The Colorado Way, which received rave reviews.
Colorado Way tracks included:
Track 1 – Build a Business Friendly Environment
Track 2 – Recruit, Grow & Retain Business
