    Thursday, March 7, 2019

    10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

    Ohio University - Russ Innovation Gateway, Beavercreek, OH

    CLICK HERE for the Workshop Agenda


    • Essential workshop for local and regional economic development practitioners
    • Excellent course for elected and appointed local officials such as: city managers, mayors, township trustees and county commissioners
    • No prerequisites: open to all levels of experience
    • Qualifies as OEDI Elective, 5 CE hours


           

    The Ohio Economic Development Association is proud to have partnered with JobsOhio and Ohio University Voinovich School to create the Ohio Economic Development Institute, the state’s premier professional development program for economic development professionals.


    Workshop Description: Economic impact analysis is a common tool used to explain the impact of new firm location, the loss of a major employer or the impact of a new development. Economic impact analysis shows the direct benefit of job creation (or loss), and the impact on the local supply chain and broader economy in terms of employment, income, and economic output. This course reviews the common economic impact models: IMPLAN, RIMS-II, and REMI, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.

    Participants will review economic impact model examples and explore the application and misuse of these tools in real-world economic development projects. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better positioned to evaluate economic impact models and have a baseline for pursuing further training on conducting economic impact analysis. This course complements a future OEDI elective: Understanding Fiscal Impact Analysis.

    Course Description: This two-day course is designed to provide the economic development professional with the critical steps of real estate development and a comprehensive understanding of how a deal progresses through to completion.

    Attendees will analyze the anatomy of a real estate deal and learn how each component stage impacts the next, and how real estate development is practiced in Ohio. This understanding will help the ED professional recognize the challenges (and often barriers) to advancing a new development in their community and to more thoughtfully understand approaches in helping close the deal.

    The OEDI Real Estate Course interactive delivery model helps ensure participants will leave with immediately applicable knowledge and build their professional network through group activities and the inclusion of an evening networking reception.  Unlike traditional lecture-style, this course focuses on participant engagement and interaction.  And, it provides a forum for economic development professionals to share information and build relationship with the best in the industry.

    Prerequisites: There is a prerequisite for all Institute courses.  Attendees must have completed The Ohio Basic Economic Development Course or have three years of economic or community development experience.  Individuals who will be taking the Ohio Basic Economic Development Course in April 2019 may register for the courses.

    OEDI courses are stand-alone, though they serve as the pathway to the Ohio Certified Economic Development Credential.  Members are encouraged to register for multiple courses to received special discounted pricing.
