EDA Professional Development Opportunity:

If you are interested in learning how to create a healthy and thriving business community, we encourage you to take EDA's next online course.

Business Retention and Expansion (click on the link to read about the course; registration is open). It runs September 8 - October 6 for a total of 15 hours. Plan to attend. 

This course is part of our Community Economic Development Training Program (CEDTP). The result of a strong BR&E strategy is a long term sustainable community foundation. Long-term BR&E programs are a means of connecting businesses with resources and opportunities that will improve their competitive position, market networks and ultimately their profitability. This is an online course through the University of Calgary which means you can take part from the comfort of your own home or office. We highly recommend this course!
