Strengthening Economies in Wyoming

I’m continuing to work with my colleagues from the National Association of Counties and the National Association of Development Organizations on a project to aid coal-reliant communities in the West seeking to develop economic diversification strategies and programs.  We’ve been holding a series of workshops over the past year, and you’re invited to attend our next session.   Strengthening Economies in Wyoming will be an opportunity to engage national and local experts in developing strategies and program that help coal-reliant regions replace lost jobs and identify new economic growth opportunities.   The event will be held on June 21-22 in Gillette Wyoming, and registration is free.   This should be a very interesting set of discussions.  Wyoming has one of the US’s least diverse economies, but is making a major push to identify new economic engines.  A new statewide effort called ENDOW (Economically Needed Diversity Options for Wyoming) is getting a lot of attention, and is sparking fascinating conversations about Wyoming’s economic future.  Hope you can join us in June!
