The Economic & Community Development Institute at Auburn University is pleased to offer its second retail development course for economic developers, Chamber of Commerce officials, state and local elected officials and community leaders, utility company representatives, and community and regional planners.
On March 12-13, 2008 ECDI will present “Strategies for Retail Development”. During this two-day course, we will assemble leading retail, economic and community development experts at The Marriott Legends at Capitol Hill in Prattville to present ideas and success strategies for retail development. In addition, community and economic developers from across Alabama will share best practices based upon proven success in community-based retail development. Course participants will be encouraged to ask questions and engage in constructive dialogue about the challenges, possibilities and potential of retail development as an essential economic development strategy.
