Please join an IMCP regions conference call on Wednesday. Complete this Doodle poll to choose time. http://doodle.com/4bi67zkcnde29eyz. If you can’t attend, please contact me.
Here’s the latest from Ryan Hedgepeth and Julie Wenah:
- EDA understands the IMCP program is just getting off the ground and the first IMCP group is at a disadvantage, so they want to make redesignation “not a heavy lift.” They are looking for qualitative measures, with strong supporting narrative.
- They plan to have the Redesignation process ready by November 2015. IMCP regions deadline would be March, 2016. That way, if any IMCP region is off the mark, EDA can work with them.
EDA is asking for input from BFF's, Commerce economists and the IMCP regions. Let's weigh in!
