COURSE: Business Retention & Expansion (Virtual)

April 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am - April 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm


Join us for the next course in the Oregon Economic Development Training Program to learn about effective Business Retention & Expansion strategies. This training will be delivered virtually over two half-days on the mornings of April 15th and 16th, 2021. The course will combine live sessions, written materials, prerecorded segments, and two interactive round-tables. Please reserve 9:00 am – 12:00 pm on both days and a refined agenda will be sent to registrants.

Note: OEDA has lowered registration fees to reflect the absence of catering costs and to support affordability and access to these essential trainings during this time. We plan to resume awards of Rural Scholarships for travel and lodging when in-person classes resume.

Participation in this training session also counts towards the Oregon Certified Economic Developer Program.
