Now, as dust settles from the pandemic, every government is wide awake, ready to make a change. During key phases of transition like these, the best foot forward is the one that greets innovation.

The community leaders seeking to rebuild and rejuvenate their cities are looking for the pieces they need but may not know how (or where) to access them. Before actionable steps can be taken on the economic and community development front, governments need to know where they are deficient. The main question we want to help you answer is: What aspects should governments consider to begin a successful development plan?
This session will help you address:

The widespread sweep of COVID-19 threatened the heart and soul of every government: community. Local businesses were stuck in a murky unknown with no life jacket in sight. Residents struggled to stay connected to not only family and friends, but also to the government they looked to for guidance. News outlets seemed to fixate on hopelessness and government leaders wondered if the days ahead would provide refuge for their communities. And we all knew the future would be nothing like the past. While forward was the only option, sadly, we had no clear direction on how to get there.
