This webinar will provide participants with insights into why they should measure the impact of economic development programs.  Methodologies for measuring impact will be discussed, with a brief case study example.  Tools to use in effective impact measurement will be introduced.  The webinar will conclude with key challenges and tips for effective implementation.
