Federal economic development programs are complex and ever changing, and understanding these programs is crucial for local development practitioners, particularly now as the economy slows.

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC), in concert with national, regional and state economic development association partners, will bring federal policy-makers and local economic development professionals together for the 2002 Economic Development Summit, March 6-8 at the Hilton Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia.

Conference sessions will address - from the federal policy perspective - critical issues in rural, suburban and urban economic development, including: smart growth, faith-based development, international economic development,
transportation, brownfield reuse, workforce development, technology-led development and finance. There also will be Pre-Conference Workshops taking an in-depth look at economic development project financing, military base issues and entrepreneurship.

The annual Economic Development Summit Policy Dinner will explore the economic development implications of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the rapid decline of the economy. Listen to engaging dialogue about practical applications for the economic development profession in helping the nation recover.

Make plans now and join your colleagues at this year’s Summit so you too can network, review federal programs and learn how federal policies and programs are changing to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
