Join us for a discussion with Zach Kennedy, University of Illinois Extension’s Community and Economic Development State Specialist, to learn more about data trends affecting economic development in Illinois. Using data can greatly improve decision-making, increase understanding of emerging trends, and improve application of information in our day to day roles in our communities. In this webinar, Kennedy will provide Illinois’ “data snapshot,” present demographic and economic information about the state and its regions, and give participants the opportunity to ask specific questions.
