Annual TMACOG General Assembly
TMACOG will hold its annual General Assembly Wednesday, January 26, 2011, 1:30 – 7:45 p.m. at the Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg. Workshops and the keynote presentation will address the theme “Economic Development Strategies: Plan it, Build it, and Sustain it.”
The dinner/keynote presentation is from John Fernandez, U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development. He’ll speak on the theme: “Plan and Build your Economic Development Strategy.”
The program for this year’s assembly features a single workshop: “Sustaining Economic Development Strategies.” A panel will address what’s needed to sustain development momentum in the areas of education, alternative energy, infrastructure, tourism, and business and industry. From their different perspectives, panel members will talk about sustainability: how we move forward to meet our present needs without compromising future efforts.
The assembly is the annual business meeting for TMACOG. Before the workshop and dinner presentation, TMACOG members elect leadership, elect council and committee members, and caucus with peer groups.
Online registration will begin December 15. For more information contact Greg Gettum at 419.241.9155 ext. 132.
