The training course is designed to increase economic development professionals’ understanding of how financial packages are structured and the importance of public financing options and incentives in attracting and retaining companies. The topic was developed in response to a survey of economic development professionals’ needs.

Registration for the course is $250. A welcome reception will be held in Athens Dec. 4 and in Tifton Feb. 4. For more information or to register, visit
