We are offering a special opportunity to learn and network with other economic development interns and young professionals on Monday, December 11, 2017.
The morning will be devoted to building important foundational knowledge for the economic development profession and the afternoon will provide an opportunity for developing insight into your strengths to help you better understand yourself, how you influence others and shape culture. You can learn more about this valuable assessment process at http://www.leadershipvisionconsulting.com/#about. You are responsible for the $20 Strengthsfinder Assessment fee.
Lunch will be provided. Classroom activities will be held at Hamline University, Anderson 111.
