Special Educational Opportunity at the 2014 UEDA Summer Forum: Learn New Constructive Collaboration & Teambuilding Techniques from a National Expert

Constructive teamwork leads to successful outcomes. However, often members of any team have different incentives, goals and problem solving approaches. Overcoming these issues requires creativity and innovation. At this year’s UEDA Summer Forum you can find out how to best tackle this issue. We are delighted that Leigh Thompson, one of Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management’s most sought after and distinguished professors, has agreed to teach Forum participants a special brief UEDA/Kellogg course. In this course you will gain special skills in negotiating “win-win” collaboration. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity.

The course will be held prior to the 2014 UEDA Summer Forum in Chicago and will take place Monday, August 4th from 9:00-12:00 noon at the Chicago Monaco Hotel. Download Brochure or Register Now.

This course is accredited by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) as a recognized event for professional development training that counts toward the recertification of Certified Economic Developers (CEcD).


Economic development professionals in today’s demanding environment require up-to-date information and creative new solutions to be successful. For this reason every 18 months the Utility Economic Development Association (UEDA) and Northwestern University’s world rewound Kellogg School of Management team up to create relevant high-level economic development curriculums.

These courses are designed specifically for investor owned utility electric and gas utility professionals and their regional allies. They focus on critical areas of importance and are taught by Kellogg facility members who are selected because of their areas of expertise and exceptional teaching abilities.

Each program blends current trends and data with management principles, case studies and lively class interaction, all designed to equip participants with the tools they need to help sustain healthy economies in the regions they serve.

The next full Executive Economic Development Education Course is scheduled for 2015.


"The course was outstanding and well worth the investment to encourage interaction with my partners. Our experience has proved to be invaluable as we continue working together to advance economic development in our state."

“Thank you for involving Metro Government in the seminar. I found it very valuable. Frankly, I am generally very cynical about such programs but it was by far the best that I have attended in a long time.”
J. David Morris

“Perhaps the most productive aspect of the course came from spending three days together, hearing the same information, debating the pros and cons and agreeing on the best future course. I highly recommend it.
