Lisa Hurley Completes Advanced Economic Development Program

Lisa Hurley, Executive Director of York County Development Corporation, recently completed the Advanced Economic Development Leadership (AEDL) program.  AEDL is a two-week executive education course developed by four partner universities (The University of Alabama, Clemson University, Texas Christian University, the University of Southern Mississippi).

At graduation ceremonies in Kansas City, Missouri, graduates were awarded the Economic Development Master Practitioner diploma.

The Advanced program is an experiential course that explores economic development subjects that impact communities and states across the U.S.  Instructors include site consultants, business leaders, nationally known subject experts and university professors.  This world-class faculty discusses negotiation, communication, workforce/education, project management, community development, influencing change, international trade/foreign direct investment and other key subjects that impact quality job creation.

“Being a certified economic developer, it was enjoyable to go through this advanced course, and to dig into some real case stories on economic development and leadership. I am already implementing skills I learned in this program.” Lisa Hurley.
