New Administration, New Beginnings: Energizing Communities and the Economy
March 15-17, 2009
Washington, DC Metro Area

Change has come to Washington, and both opportunities and challenges abound – from a new presidential administration and a significantly altered Congress to the toughest economic climate in decades. Economic developers must understand the players, the priorities and the possible policy responses germinating in Washington that will affect our work for years to come, in regard to both short-term economic stimulus and long-term, sustainable competitiveness.

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) welcomes you to attend the 2009 Federal Economic Development Forum, March 15-17, in the Washington, DC Metro Area. Join us for three days of informative sessions and a first-rate lineup of speakers highlighting the relevant federal issues facing the economic development community.

Washington Briefing

With a new President, new Administration and new Congress, policy priorities will be changing. This plenary session will provide an overview of the president's budget, insights on what the priorities are and identify what parts of the budget important for economic developers will come to the floor of Congress.
