FLC University Summits: Tools That Work for Economic Development

Overview

Effective economic development requires leadership. Policy decisions, implementation strategy and economic reality ideally come together to achieve a community’s economic development goals. Led by Kevin Crowder, along with Sharon McCormick, this program provided real-world guidance on the fundamentals and tools of realistic economic development that elected officials can use to guide strategies for sustainable economic development in their communities.

RMA was engaged by the Florida League of Cities to teach this segment (Tools That Work for Economic Development) of the 2015 FLC University Regional Summit Series. The Summit was held in four locations throughout Florida (Tallahassee, Sarasota, Davie, and Winter Park), and was attended by over 250 municipal officials.

The curriculum developed by RMA for this class was based on RMA’s BusinessFlareTM approach to economic development, and included individual sessions on:

  • What Drives Economic Development
  • Managing and Funding Economic Development
  • Real Estate and Public-Private Partnerships (P3)
  • Business Retention vs. Business Recruitment
  • Branding for Business
  • Measuring Economic Development

Outcome

The curriculum was very well received, with 87% of attendees at the Winter Park summit rating it as excellent, 53% of attendees reporting that many points made during the class are useful in their work, and 47% reporting that ALL of the information presented is useful in their work.

“I truly believe RMA’s BusinessFlareTM approach is the right approach to make the Pompano Beach CRA’s new commerce park a reality, by blending the right balance of economic development and redevelopment strategies.”
