Michigan Economic Developers Association

The Leading Voice for Economic Developers in Michigan

The Spring Economic Development Toolbox

This yearly event will be held on Thursday, May 24, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West Hotel.

The event looks at key economic development tools comprehensively from both an informational and implementation aspect. Several breakout sessions are held throughout the program so that attendees can choose the programs that are the most important to their area of responsibility. Both state and local professionals join together to take a fresh look at both current and new programs used by economic and community development professionals.

In order to develop the best conference, a volunteer committee of MEDA members meets regularly to plan The Spring Economic Development Toolbox and other MEDA membership programs. Click here to learn more about the Education Committee.
