Posted on: August 24th, 2015 by Brett Schwartz

Picture1This September, join the NADO Research Foundation for a three-part webinar series that will take a deeper dive into the recent revisions to EDA’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) Content Guidelines (http://www NULL.eda NULL.gov/ceds/).  The Guidelines suggest how to develop the document’s format and substance to make the strongest, most useful and effective CEDS possible – a true roadmap and driver of regional economic resilience.  Building more resilient communities starts with better planning – planning that is comprehensive, forward-thinking, and goal-oriented.

These free, hour-long webinars will showcase economic development districts throughout the country that have taken innovative planning approaches to integrating economic resilience into their CEDS through aligning existing regional planning processes, robustly analyzing their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and developing relevant and realistic metrics for measuring their progress.
