Upcoming Webinars:

Wednesday, June 1, 9-10 am – Special Webinar: Economic Development & the Surplus Lands Act

Don’t miss this timely opportunity to learn about the Surplus Lands Act (SLA), and its impact on economic development uses of publicly owned land. After hearing from economic developers at CALED’s conference and seeing the introduction of AB 2357 (Ting), we know this is a top priority for many of you. This webinar will:

1)      Provide a quick background on the SLA

2)      Share feedback we are hearing about the impacts of the SLA on economic development

3)      Brief you on key legislation related to the SLA that could further undermine local economic development uses

4)      Explain next steps you can take to engage on this issue

July 6, 2022 – Economic Development Resiliency and Recovery Playbook

CALED created an Economic Recovery & Resiliency Playbook, funded by an EDA CARES Act grant, that focuses on providing tools, tactics, and resources for communities responding to or preparing for an economic disruption. This webinar will discuss the playbook and show economic developers how being strategic and planning for resiliency will better prepare your community to meet future challenges that cause economic disruptions and will advantageously position it for a faster recovery.
