Alongside his other professional pursuits, Michael Erin maintains membership in the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), a nonprofit organization that oversees various programs and events for economic developers.
Each year, the IEDC holds an annual conference that attracts economic development professionals from around the globe. In 2017, the IEDC Annual Conference will be held September 17-20 in Toronto, Canada.
The four-day event will mark the first time the conference has been held outside of the United States, and it will give attendees the opportunity to visit Canada while the country is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its confederation. At the conference, attendees will take part in a program comprising learning labs, workshops, and other educational sessions covering broad topics such as global trade, entrepreneurship, and capital investing.
The event will also feature several networking activities, including an ice cream social, a recognition dinner, and the Excellence in Economic Development Awards ceremony. For more information, including registration and hotel details, visit www.iedconline.org.
