Stephen Chapple ACEcD Chairman of Economic Development Australia and National Board member Simon Millcock ACEcD will be presenting at this year's International Economic Development Council's Conference on September 18 - 21 Charlotte, North Carolina.  The IEDC conference will focus on discussing how economic developers are adapting to the new normal and rewriting the rules for economic development. Their session is titled Developing Successful International Partnerships and will be facilitated by Don Holbrook CEcD IEDC 2011 Board of Directors.


Stephen, Simon and Don are keen to expand their knowledge in the field of economic development internationally and are planning a 3-4 day study tour following the conference. The concept being developed is to meet with local and or regional development bodies whilst undertaking site visit to explore, listen, learn and impart some of their own knowledge. The current plan is to leave from Charlotte N.C. and travel via vehicle/s (depending on the numbers) no more than a couple of hours each day before meeting up with various communities.


If you would be interested in being part of one of these study tours please feel free to contact Simon Millcock at simon.millcock@regional.gov.au.
