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.

With a new President, new Administration and new Congress, policy priorities will be changing.
