Michigan Economic Developers Association - Your Partner in Growing Your Community

MEDA Regional Networking and Knowledge Exchange

19 Fall NK Marketing Whole InviteThis event will be held on Wednesday, November 13th at Harmony Brewing Company's Harmony Hall in Grand Rapids.

About the Exchange

MEDA's Regional Networking and Knowledge Exchanges started when MEDA's Membership Committee made it a goal to increase engagement for the Association after members sought more time for networking at events.

Economic developers and their partners in community development, talent development, environmental, housing, etc., are invited to this casual afternoon of meeting and mingling. To add to the value, you will go home with information that will help you do your job more efficiently and effectively, which is MEDA's Mission and Vision for you.
