Be the Change, Before Change Changes You!

This year we are challenging you to “Be the Change, Before Change Changes You!” 

As Economic Development professionals, it’s our responsibility to lead our communities through potential growth opportunities and predict challenges that may come from these opportunities. Some Colorado communities have seen unprecedented growth which brings economic vitality and jobs. It can also bring certain challenges that have to be addressed before negative impacts implicate the growth. Other Colorado communities have an opportunity to seize the momentum by analyzing supply chain and workforce opportunities.

This three-day conference will challenge our attendees to look to the future for their communities, what resources will they need, and how they will implement the changes needed to stay in front of change. Attendees will be armed with real-time resources and solutions they can take back and implement in their communities.

Hear from experts on

  • Corporate Social Responsibility – the changing face of business
  • Growing exports and attracting Foreign Direct Investment
  • Retail is changing, is your community ready?
  • The future of national Broadband Network architectures
  • Census 2020 and what you need to know
