Join IEDC in New Orleans for the 2016 Leadership Summit. Themed "Resilient Pathways: Creating Innovative Ecosystems and Diverse Economies", this Summit will challenge economic development leaders to think about the paths not taken, the pathways and partnerships to be developed, and the existing pathways that can be optimized for economic growth.

Utilizing pathways in economic development requires coordinated planning and partnerships that allow a community to maximize all available assets and resources in pursuit of economic development. Utilizing innovative and resilient pathways will lead to reinvention, and will allow economic development leaders to weather any storm and emerge stronger than before. With a focus on workforce and education, the built and natural environment, and economic equity, this Summit will demonstrate what can be achieved when pathways and connections are forged between sectors, organization and income levels, resulting in economic prosperity for all.

Attendance is limited to senior managers of economic development organizations and Certified Economic Developers (CEcDs).
