Mapping Your Community’s Strengths

The Empowering Rural Economies virtual series continues to bring economic developers and city officials useful and timely resources. This session will be hosted by the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), which offers a powerful data mapping tool with detailed levels of demographics and employer statistics. These mapping tools are useful to economic developers who are actively showcasing their communities to employers and retailers. With MAG’s mapping tools, economic developers are enabled to showcase the availability of a labor force to a prospective employer or demonstrate the buying power to a retailer within customizable commute sheds.

Speaker: Scott Wilken, Senior Planning Project Manager, Maricopa Association of Governments

Date: 10 - 11 a.m., Thursday, October 21 on Zoom
