ROSWELL, Ga. — The Board of the Georgia Academy for Economic Development announces Steve Stroud, executive director of the Roswell Business Alliance, and Nancy Diamond, City Council liaison to community development, as Roswell graduates from the 2012 Region 3 Multi-Day Training Program.

Class participants included professionals and non-professionals involved within economic development fields. The academy provided each of the graduates an opportunity to gain a unique understanding of the complexities of economic and community development on the local, regional and state levels.

Since its organization in 1993 by then-Gov. Zell Miller's Development Council, the academy has provided training for thousands of professional and non-professional economic developers around the state. Georgia EMC and Georgia Power provide facilitators for the program, and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs provides staff support.

The academy's multi-day program, taught one day a month over a four-month period, includes training in the basics of economic and community development, plus specialized segments on business recruitment and retention, tourism product development, downtown development, quality planning, redevelopment and other essentials for community success. In addition, the curriculum features specific leadership skills such as consensus building, ethics in public service, collaborative leadership and other segments needed for effective community leadership in economic development.

The next Region 3 Georgia Academy for Economic Development will begin in August 2013.
