The 2018 ECG Econoomic Development Summit is a wrap. Another ECG event bringing together elected officials, city leadership, statewide agencies and local and statewide economic developers to hear from local experts and respected professionals with ideas and best practices to advance the economic development efforts of our member communities.

“The Summit was one of the best events that I have ever attended. It is a great size – small enough that you will bump into folks several times throughout the week – yet big enough to attract diverse speakers filled with a combination of creativity and best practices! And everything is first class…from the people to the site to the program!” – Brian Herrmann, City Planner with the city of Thomasville, GA
