President’s Message

On behalf of the OEDA Board of Directors, I welcome you to Lake Oswego and our 2017 Annual Conference. We appreciate your investment and attendance and are confident you will go home with many new ideas, expanded energy and further understanding of the trends impacting the economic development profession in Oregon. The state is experiencing record setting growth in terms of jobs, revenues and population increases. This, no doubt, is a reflection of the excellent work and successes achieved by so many of you in your respective communities. Our Conference Planning Committee has worked diligently to bring you this power packed agenda which provides insight into best practices, innovations and new and existing tools and resources to help grow and sustain our local economies. While you are in attendance, I encourage you to reach out to new faces, celebrate successes and spend time networking and collaborating with your colleagues. We hope you find your time here in South Metro to be enriching and engaging.
—Jon Stark, OEDA President
