A website all EDOs & community leaders should know about right now

Recently, I wrote a guest post for RestoreYourEconomy.org, a project funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration and managed by the International Economic Development Council.

I wrote a guest post providing practical communication tips about how to keep your community informed of available resources during COVID 19. Some tips you will find in the article include:

  • Create a page on your website listing local, state, and national COVID resources for businesses
  • Create a page on your website supporting local businesses that includes up-to-date information about how to support local businesses – whether that’s through online purchases, buying gift cards, etc.

  • How to use video webinars and email in order to share information widely.

You can read the full article here.

They are working tirelessly to pull together helpful resources, resources, practices, templates, and tools for economic development and chamber of commerce professionals, as well as community leaders, planners, organizers, and advocates working on economic recovery efforts during this time.

This site is one great example of how to put great leadership and communication in action.

‘Til next time,
Sandy
