Testimonials – C2ER Helps Economic Professionals Grow












“I have this team of experts behind me [with C2ER]. So many of us [in economic development shops] are teams of one or two. I have one and a half people on my research team. We realize that we’re very limited in what we can do, so it’s nice to be able to reach out to all these folks around the country who have similar experiences and are experts in their area.”








“[C2ER has] been tremendous for me. It’s significantly helped my professional development. It’s helped the work that we do with the clients and communities that my organization works with.”








“I enhanced my knowledge of economic development and growth insights and analytics with C2ER young professionals certificate at the beginning of my career. Involvement with C2ER has enhanced my skills of critical thinking and logic reasoning in selecting topics and speakers for the conference. C2ER was instrumental in showcasing our collaborative work in the Charlotte region for our COVID-19 dashboard that received attention from our peers across the nation. With C2ER, I find value and inspiration.”
