In consultation with partner state associations of regional councils and the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), the Indiana Communities Institute has developed a series of courses aimed at furthering regional leadership skills within the fields of community and economic development. Participants who complete each course will earn a Regional Leader Certificate.
These courses range in length (from one hour to multiple days) and in delivery format (online, in-person, or blended). Some trainings are customized based on policies and programs in the participating state. Others are available to all regardless of geography. Funding from EDA makes each course possible for free or at a deeply discounted, at-cost rate. Any associated travel is the responsibility of each participant.
The workshops listed below are only available to members of EDA-affiliated organizations. Participation is contingent upon meeting this requirement, which will be confirmed. Workshops are listed first by format (online or in-person) and then chronologically. Participants must register separately for each workshop.
