We all know that economic development is critical. It is the foundational work that helps to create jobs, support businesses, and improve the quality of life in communities, large and small.
These days, everyone is talking about the importance of economic development because we all feel the impact the pandemic is having on the Alberta economy. And we recognize how economic developers are bolstering municipalities and helping Alberta’s communities to recover.
AUMA is joining Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) to help amplify this important work by inviting you to officially proclaim May 9 to 15 as International Economic Development Week.
EDA & AUMA have made created the information you need. Follow these steps:
- Customize the attached sample resolution
- Have your Council/Mayor officially proclaim the week in your community and sign the resolution
- Share the proclamation with local media and on your social media pages. Don’t forget to tag EDA: @edaalberta
- Email email@example.com, and it will be added to the EDA website.
EDA’s goal is to have at least 25 Alberta communities, large and small, proclaim May 9 – 15, 2021 International Economic Development Week.
Your involvement in the 2021 Community Challenge gives you a voice. It lets your community know you value the contribution of economic development and helps you strengthen support for the work your economic development staff does throughout the year.
