Best Practices in Economic Development from Experienced Leaders
Reflecting on the Past Year with MEDA
Reflecting back on the past year, I am both honored and humbled to be part of a truly amazing year for MEDA. The support of our sponsors, committee chairs and vice-chairs, members, and staff have been wonderful. Your participation in MEDA is critical and essential to the overall success of our organization. We are looking forward to developing new programs.
2019 was incredible for many reasons. Under the leadership of President Justin Horvath, we reached and then surpassed our membership goal, we held our Annual Meeting in the Upper Peninsula, and programs and training sessions like IEDC’s Real Estate Development and Reuse have had record attendance. This level of engagement will continue to strengthen and advance MEDA’s mission.
Our Annual Meeting will be in Traverse City, August 18-21, 2020, at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. The planning committee is hard at work on the content and you will be seeing information come out in the next few months about the event. You will not want to miss it.
Thank You and Cheers to 2020!
