8th Annual Area Development Women in Economic Development Conference


In September, Emberton represented the region during the Women in Economic Development Forum in Chicago organized by Area Development in Chicago. The event is designed to allow attendees to network with some of the most influential and active site consultants, industry experts and economic development professionals while gaining insight into current site selection trends and best economic development practices.

The Partnership also co-hosted several of the consultants for a private dinner during the conference.
