MCEDA Economic Summit

April 25, 2018
9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Cortez Conference Center, Holiday Inn, Cortez CO

Mark your calendar for this regional Economic Summit, April 25, 2018! Discover ways we can create more wealth that takes root in our local people, agriculture, timber, tourism, outdoor recreation, the arts, small businesses and organizations.
How do we recognize economic opportunities in Montezuma County and engage a diverse group of partners? Identify how we can invest in a community economy that results in wealth and asset building, enabling businesses, institutions and residents to prosper!

This summit will explore the ways we can:
  • Build on our growing momentum, creating greater synergies and collaboration among industries and institutions
  • Identify underutilized community assets - people, organizations and businesses - gain greater participation and buy in
  • Create a community economy by forging stronger partnerships that are focused on locally controlled investments with long term outcomes

Ted Howard is the Co-founder and President of The Democracy Collaborative. Ted presents frequently about community wealth building, most recently at the Clinton Global Initiative-America, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, the Cooperative United World Conference, National Health Services and Cambridge University, in England.
