UT to host area economic development workshop

On Friday, Nov. 30, 2007, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Dana Conference Center on The University of Toledo Health Science Campus, economic development groups in the Lucas County area will gather for the first time in several years to share information and economic development goals and see how they might better work together.

Toledo-Lucas County Meta-Plan Workshop participants include: the Regional Growth Partnership, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, TMACOG, Lucas County Commissioners/LCIC, Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, Toledo Mayor’s office, and the UT Science and Technology Corridor.

From 8:15 to 8:45 a.m., there will be a presentation on “clusters.” A cluster strategy is when businesses in a particular industry collaborate with academia and other community partners within their geographic area to develop and implement a strategy to become more globally competitive.

Each participating organization will then give a 15-minute presentation between 9 and 11 a.m. about its goals and strategic plans.

The presentations will be followed by a discussion from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. about aligning Toledo-Lucas County’s top three to four strategic goals, identifying possible gaps in the goals and developing a plan for working with southeast Michigan. 

At 1 p.m., Ohio Lt. Governor Lee Fisher will deliver the workshop’s keynote address.

RSVP by Wednesday, Nov. 21 to [email protected] or by calling 419.530.6900.
