The Role of Volunteers in Economic Development

Posted on by Sadie Colcord

What is economic development and why should you care?  As a resident or business owner in your town, you have the opportunity to impact the economic development decisions that not only affect the fiscal health of your town, but also the overall character of your community.

In this episode, Sadie Colcord, CERC's Municipal Services Associate, recaps a recent presentation she gave to the Town of Colchester on the transformational approach to municipal economic development, and the roles that volunteers can take within the economic development process... from advocacy, to engagement to being a part of the planning process, there are numerous ways that you can positively partner with the economic development team within your town.
