Leadership Perspectives on Economic Development in DC

As the District of Columbia prepares for transition under the Fenty Administration, the experience and perspectives of seasoned leadership may prove paramount to sustaining the momentum of economic development across the city. Join us on Thursday, December 7, for the final Business Initiatives Breakfast of 2006. “Think Forward/Look Backward: The Challenges of Economic Development in DC” will feature a conversation with Stanley Jackson, Eric Price, David Watts and Merrick Malone.

Among the political entities leading economic transformation in the District is the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development. The Office supports the Mayor in developing and executing the District’s economic development policy. It also advises the Mayor on the most effective allocation of public resources devoted to economic development.

The Washington, DC Economic Partnership has assembled the current Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development and three former deputy mayors for a discussion of the challenges, accomplishments and legacies of this high profile leading appointed position.

The Business Initiatives Breakfast will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2006, 8:00 – 10:00am. The location is Reed Smith LLP, 1301 K Street, NW, East Tower Penthouse. (METRO: McPherson Square – Blue/Orange Lines)
