| 4th Annual Women in Economic Development
|Probably the best conference I’ve been to in the last 3 years. I’ve never gone to a gender specific conference but I’m so glad that I did!
The content was great, the dialog was informative, and the ability to discuss the nature-of-the-beast without having to be politically correct made the event a real pleasure to attend.
I had/have mentors and saw myself in many of the young women who attended. This conference is super important for those coming up the ranks but also for those of us who are seasoned and need to see just how much we’ve grown and overcome. I have recommended the conference to at least 4 other women and hope they will all consider attending next year. Great job!

One of the best conferences I have been to – very informative and no fluff, timely, and great location.
I was reluctant to attend in the past because I envisioned this seminar being an “I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR” type of event. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not. Thank you

This is my first time attending this Forum and I’m extremely impressed. I love the fact that it’s a very planned out agenda, the location and the fact the Forum is not huge. I think the number of women in attendance is just about right. It gives you the ability to actually network and get to know one another. A huge benefit to this meeting.

The panels and presentation were all excellent. Extremely valuable to economic development practitioners in the field doing deals.
I really enjoy this conference. The opportunities to learn extend well beyond the sessions to the networking with key readers in the economic development field.
