    WHEN: Thursday, July 12, 2018 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    APA NYM Economic Development Committee is inviting you to join the roundtable discussion!

    Economic Development Roundtable:

    Do you want to hear about the latest Planning trends in New York City? Do you have something interesting to say about Economic Development?

    Join the APA-NYM Economic Development Committee for a series of conversations with your peers so we can learn from each other about the projects, new theories and trends in Economic Development that we are passionate about.

    Each participant will have the option to lead a short discussion by presenting a 5 to a 10-minute case study and leading a roundtable Q&A.  

    If you don’t want to lead a case study discussion you’re still welcome to learn, participate in the Q&A and join us for dinner.  Dinner will be provided free of charge.

    This is a great opportunity to learn and share the interesting projects (yours or not), current economic development issues or/and your ideas with other professionals. Please let us know if you are interested in presenting!

    We look forward to learning with you!

  • Panel Discussion: Worker Directed Economic Development: The Role of Planning in the Development and Support of Worker Coops

    WHEN: Thursday, January 18, 2018 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    APA NYM Economic Development Committee invites you to a panel discussion with 3 guest speakers to discuss Worker Directed Economic Development. In 2014, NYC Council voted to support a $1.2 million initiative to fund the development of worker cooperatives. Worker cooperatives are growing nationally as part of a broad movement addressing urban poverty, long-term unemployment, and income inequality. Public and private leadership have been working together to support this promising option for improving the social and economic well-being of greater New York’s most vulnerable. This panel will explore the result off that legislation by hearing from leaders of organizations who have been funded by the The NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) Worker Cooperative Business Development Initiative.

    Moderated panel with question and answer session to follow.
