Broadening Economic Development to Include New Sectors

Posted on: September 9th, 2013 by Alexandria Murnan

This session occurred on August 26, 2013 at the Annual Training Conference in San Francisco, CA.

Increasingly, RDOs are working to encourage non-traditional industries and sectors that draw on the unique cultural, natural, and built assets in their regions. These sectors could include arts and culture, organic and other specialized agriculture, artisanal foods and beverages, “green” products and services, creative enterprises, and others. This session highlighted three regional efforts to promote new industries and examine the opportunities, challenges, and potential roles of regional organizations to broaden economic development beyond its conventional boundaries.

  • Tim Ricard, Program Manager, Sonoma County Economic Development Board
  • Amanda Hoey, Executive Director, Mid-Columbia Economic Development District
  • Myron Schuster, Executive Director, Northwest Wisconsin RPC
