The Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities Conference, presented by Michigan State University Extension was held this week in Port Huron. Our president, Jeff Hawkins, had the honor of presenting along with Geoff Donaldson, Senior Planner from St. Clair County. The title of their presentation was Let's Work Together! The session focused on how County Redevelopment Authorities can work with their local communities to bring about redevelopment success. To view the presentation, please click here.
The premise of the conference was to bring like-minded communities together to share best practices and ideas and to assist entrepreneurs in growing their local communities. The Conference began and ended with keynote speakers at the Port Huron City Council Chambers, overlooking Canada in downtown Port Huron. Break-out sessions were held in unique venue locations throughout the downtown; all within walking distance. Twenty-six educational sessions were offered throughout the conference, and each participant had the opportunity to attend seven sessions. Additionally, they had opportunities to network with others, learn best practices, and share success stories...truly "Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities".
