April 8, 2014
Recently, GEDA emailed Georgia Tech's survey conducted for the Innovation and Economic Prosperity Designation. Georgia Tech is applying for this designation with the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU).
You are invited to attend a feedback forum, during which they will present the survey findings and discuss ways for Georgia Tech to increase and improve engagement in economic development and regional development. It is their goal through these efforts to increase Georgia Tech’s economic impact and become a more responsive and strategic partner to economic development efforts across the state and region.
This forum will be held on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm (lunch will be provided), in the Hodges Room, Centergy Building, 3rd Floor, Technology Square.
Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, April 1, 2014 to Chris Downing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
