Building Blocks of Economic Development
Hamline School of Business invites you to the 2016 Community Economic Development Symposium, an annual event that brings together professionals from business, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations to address strengthening our communities through economic development and closing the income disparity gap.
Experience a powerful convergence of more than 20 professionals from diverse sectors, all of whom have real-world experience and successes in creating lasting economic change in communities. Leave with concrete tools for negotiating the complexities of housing, public safety, and job creation, all of which are fundamental pillars of any community economic development initiative.
