This is the registration fee for the Advancing Economic Development (Year 2) course being held May 14th-18th, 2018 in the Lister Centre at the University of Alberta (Edmonton, AB). Please note that accommodation package must be added separately.
When registering, please ensure you are selecting the appropriate registration (regular vs. EDAC member).
Year 2 builds on the foundation laid in Year 1 by adding specialized topics and techniques that are often employed by economic developers, including business retention and expansion (BRE), financial analysis for small business, project management and performance evaluation. Similar to Year 1, one day is dedicated to group field projects, this time with a focus on tourism development.
Refund requests must be submitted in writing, and if approved are subject to an administration fee of $50.00 if received prior to April 30th, 2018 and $100.00 if received after.
Please be aware that personal information may be shared with the Economic Developers Association of Canada (EDAC) for the purposes of confirming completion of professional development points.
