Feedback Session: Maine's 10 Year Economic Development Plan

Feedback Session: Maine's 10 Year Economic Development Plan

Tuesday, September 26, 2023
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (EDT)


Event Details

The Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP), Maine Philanthropy Center (MPC), and Cultural Alliance of Maine (CAM) are partnering with the State Workforce Board (SWB) and Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) on an effort to refresh both the 10 Year Economic Development Plan and the Comprehensive Workforce and Talent Strategy.

Maine released its 10 Year Economic Development Plan and its Comprehensive Workforce and Talent Strategy in November 2019, which outlined Maine’s economic and workforce strategy for the next decade. 

Much has taken place since the creation of these two plans, including a global pandemic. As a result, some of the strategies and actions identified have surpassed original predictions in some areas; in other areas, the work outlined in 2019 remains relevant today. Across all areas of work, there is an opportunity to refresh and update with actions that respond to today’s unique challenges and opportunities.

Workforce development, talent attraction, and innovation are key issues for nonprofits and are foundational to both plans, so we are co-hosting a forum for organizations to hear about the progress of both plans to date and provide feedback to help inform the tactical work for the next few years. Just this summer, the State released a Progress Report for 2020-2022, and is now working to continue identifying and prioritizing the actions needed to advance toward the 10-Year Goals.

All nonprofits are invited to this participatory session!
