I’m reminded of the value of my membership in the Utah Alliance for Economic Development every time I attend a quarterly meeting. I always come away with ideas or practices that broaden my understanding of economic development. Often new ideas and practices come from presentations, but just as often I learn from casual conversations with government, private industry and economic development peers. I have made great professional friendships that support what I do for rural Utah all year long.
