DEED Economic Analysis Team Wins C2ER Excellence Award
DEED economic analysts Ed Hodder and Magda Olson, led by Director Neal Young, recently won an Excellence award in the category of "Policy Analysis Supporting Federal, State, or Local Initiatives" from the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER).
The C2ER awards program recognizes the contribution of research activities to the success of local, regional, or state/provincial economic development initiatives. The purpose is to increase the quality of economic development research by identifying projects that have real merit and sending creative ideas for research activities out into the broader universe.
The award was announced on June 6, 2019, at the C2ER annual conference in St. Louis. This nationally recognized achievement raises the bar on DEED’s commitment to open government.
