Workshop teaches importance of economic analysis

Monday, December 07, 2015

Three economic development experts will outline and explain the advantages of conducting a successful economic impact analysis for development projects during a 2-hour workshop at the San Marcos Conference Center on Dec. 9.

The workshop, coordinated by CAPCOG, will focus on measuring economic impacts, particularly within the context of economic development incentives. It will address the alignment of economic development incentives to strategic goals, how to accurately measure the benefits and costs of an economic development project, and ongoing monitoring of economic impacts.

Chris Schreck, CAPCOG’s economic development program manager, will lead the workshop. The other featured presenters are two leading economic development practitioners in the CAPCOG region: Amy Madison, interim executive director of the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation, and Christian Fletcher, executive director of the Marble Falls Economic Development Corporation. Madison and Fletcher will describe how economic development incentives are used and impacts are measured in their communities. They will be available to answer specific questions.

Elected officials who attend the workshop can qualify to earn credit hours towards their state mandated or voluntary continuing education.

> Register to attend the workshop.

The workshop is free for officials residing in CAPCOG’s 10-county region.
