When selecting program venues for the Advanced Economic Development Leadership, we choose destinations and settings that are accessible, convenient, and conducive to learning. Our locations are easy to get to—by air or by car—and have the conveniences and amenities one would expect, without the crowds and ensuing distractions. The goal for the facilities themselves is to choose locations that foster camaraderie and collaboration.
