The Department of Economic Development hosted its annual Fall Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center (3090 Crain Highway, Waldorf). With over 200 people in attendance, participants gained an inside look behind the curtain of economic development from expert panelists of the public and private sectors.
Department of Economic Development Director Darrell Brown discussed key elements of the five-year strategic plan. His presentation provided an opportunity for business leaders to learn about the implementation of the strategic plan and its objectives to build on the momentum of the county’s evolution.
The program touched on the area’s targeted industries, various recommendations for the county, and introduced members of the newly appointed advisory board. “The business community is an invaluable county asset,” said Brown. “Together, we can proactively shape the economic future of Charles County.”
The panel conversations focused on the future of entrepreneurship in Charles County, infrastructure and redevelopment, as well as an update about investment. Public and private sector leaders discussed their unique visions for the county.
“Our ultimate goal was to give attendees a rich understanding of Charles County’s economic potential and the initiatives we are taking to reach this potential,” said Marcia Keeth, deputy director of Charles County Department of Economic Development. “We truly enjoyed coming together to tell Charles County’s story.”
