National Economic Development Week 2020

The Waukesha County Center for Growth joins cities nationwide to increase awareness of the positive work economic developers do to enhance local economic impact. The Center for Growth is proud to recognize this year’s Economic Development Week.

In its fifth year, National Economic Development Week was created by the International Economic Development Council, the largest professional membership organization for economic developers, to recognize the unique role that economic development has in creating vibrant communities with strong economies.

“Now more than ever, it is important that we work together to assist businesses on the road to recovery,” states Tim Casey, Director of Economic Development for the Waukesha County Center for Growth. “Supporting the businesses that make-up our vibrant communities is critical in moving our local and national economy forward again.”
