Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) for its webinar: Strategies to Bolster Economic Resilience: County Leadership in Action, featuring Maryland’s Garrett County on Thursday, January 30, from 2pm to 3:15pm EST.
From NACo’s website:
Counties, regions and communities that can foresee, adapt and leverage changing economic conditions are best positioned to attract and grow new businesses, retain skilled workers and promote a high quality of life. As a result of constrained local budgets and economic uncertainties, counties must think creatively about their local and regional strengths and how to translate those assets into economic growth. To address this, NACo recently released a report, “Strategies to Bolster Economic Resilience: County Leadership in Action,” to highlight how counties across the country are pursuing creative and innovative policies, partnerships and initiatives to create healthy, safe, vibrant and economically resilient communities.
The webinar will provide an overview of
the findings from the report and features three county leaders that are pursuing long-range planning efforts, growing and supporting local entrepreneurs and businesses, and engaging in workforce development programs and education to encourage economic growth and lasting resilience.
