Get the Federal Perspective by Attending IEDC's 2008 Federal Economic Development Forum

International Economic Development Council

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) welcomes you to attend the 2008 Federal Economic Development Forum, April 13-15 in Alexandria, Virginia. This conference focuses on federal government issues that affect the economic development industry, including the upcoming change of administration.

American competitiveness relies heavily on the efforts of economic developers – the leaders on local, regional and state levels – to navigate the innovation and entrepreneurial environment. The advancement of information technology, world trade and a breadth of other issues have created a more competitive environment, forcing economic development practitioners to be more creative and to develop policies and ideas that better address the forces of the changing global landscape.

This year's Federal Economic Development Forum revolves around its theme: The Innovative and Entrepreneurial Environment: Where It's Going and How to Get There. Federal insiders will demonstrate how to deal with upcoming economic development issues surrounding these three tracks:

•Driving Innovation and Expanding Entrepreneurship
•Human Capital: Building, Attracting, and Retaining a Talented Workforce
•The 2008 Presidential Election

Come find the solutions you need to move your organization successfully through 2008, register today! Be sure to book your hotel room by March 20th to secure the IEDC group rate of $199. You may do so by calling the Westin Alexandria at 703-253-8600.
