Conferences and Education

Economic development is constantly changing and evolving. Learn about training opportunities around the state, as well as national industry conferences, by visiting our website or checking the “training opportunities” section of the WEDA Newsfeed.

WEDA holds two professional regional economic development conferences each year for educational and networking purposes. Our winter conference is always held in Cheyenne in conjunction with the Wyoming legislative session. The other conference location varies.

There are several notable certifications for today’s economic development professionals. They are offered around the country and these certification registrations are eligible expenses for reimbursement through the WEDA Development Scholarship Program. Scholarships are limited to tuition or registration fee, including training materials, and/or travel expenses. Tuition/registration expenses may be prepaid directly by WEDA to the educational organization, upon timely request, or reimbursed upon completion of the training via submission of the Final Report dues within 45 days of course completion.
