What is it that....
• lasts five days,
• reminds you of college,
• combines fun, food, and learning,
• allows you to interact with colleagues and experts on the local level,

If you said the Northwest Economic Development Course, then you would be right.
On August 17-22, 2008, the nationally accredited 17th annual economic development course takes place in Ellensburg, Washington. This course brings together some of the best consultants, practitioners, and teachers in the country to give their thoughts on how states and communities can establish a healthy environment that can lead to economic development.
The course brochure gives you more information about this week long event. If you are interested or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either of the co-directors, Maury Forman or Carolyn Sanco.
Register on-line at www.cted.wa.gov/ed/et.
Space is limited, so if you are interested, we encourage you to register soon. Please feel free to spread the word and pass this e-mail to your colleagues. After all, we don't want economic development to be a riddle to our partners.
