Leigh Hughes with the Kershaw County Economic Development office, along with 38 other local leaders and development professionals from across South Carolina, completed the 2011 S.C. Economic Development Institute recently.

Institute attendees received their certificates of completion during the final day of the 2011 institute held at BMW’s Zentrum located in Greer. 

The 2011 institute participants traveled to different locations throughout the state that have been successful in community development and attracting and expanding their business and industrial base. Attendees gained insight into issues relating to: water and wastewater infrastructure, available industrial or business buildings, and other important community development components necessary to attract investment.

The institute is a partnership between the S.C. Department of Commerce and the S.C. Economic Developers’ Association (SCEDA). The program emphasizes essential elements necessary to be competitive in today’s global economy and educates supporters of economic development on emerging trends in community and economic development.

The institute is open to participants from a wide variety of organizations and entities including city and town and county councils; local economic development practitioners; county economic development boards; county school boards; regional economic development boards; utility companies; and local/state government employees.
