Join your fellow economic developers as we gather in beautiful, sunny St. Simons Island, on the Georgia coast for our annual GEDA Spring Workshop. Brian Dill, the SW16 Chair, has created a dynamic and educational program centered on Georgia's Workforce. We will hear from experts in the aerospace, financial technology, and automotive industries; discover how brand awareness and workforce recruitment tools influence decisions; and learn the GRAD site certification process. Additionally, our keynote speakers are Steve Hester from Chick-Fil-A and Mark Lautman. Confirmed panelists include Todd Greene, CEcD, from the Federal Reserve Bank--Atlanta, Dr. Kyle Marrero, President of the University of West Georgia; Roger Tutterow, Econometric Center at Kennesaw State University.
