Develop This: Economic and Community Development

Nov 25, 2019

Dennis and Jason are on vacation this week, so please enjoy this encore episode originally published in March 2019.

Most residents of your community are likely familiar with the terms 'chamber of commerce' and 'economic development'.  The differences between these organizations, however, aren't always clear.  Often times, anything related to business, industry, and job growth will be lumped together as though it is all done by The Chamber.

So what are the key differences between these groups if they are separate organizations within a community?  Are the roles distinguishable in communities where the two groups have merged?

In this episode, Dennis and Jason share a few key differences in these groups and offer suggestions for chambers of commerce and economic development groups considering a merger.
