The LA Economic Growth Strategy
Community Meetings
LAEGC is holding a series of community meetings to gather citizen, business, and employer input on a
renewed Economic Growth Strategy for LA. The Strategy will help chart how we as a greater community
continue to work and grow a sustainable and diverse economy for LA.
At the first of these meetings, held March 31, the participants finalized a Vision for the LA Economic
Growth Strategy. We also identified a number of community assets and those that we might consider
our “competitive advantage” over other places in the world all competing for economic growth. Visit
www.economicgrowth.org to follow the development of the Strategy.
Following the three themes of the Strategy; People, Place, Prosperity, please consider participating in
the following meetings where we will explore the next level of detail for the Strategy.
In partnership with USMLAC, we are participating in a dialogue regarding “People”--Diversity, Higher
Education, and Economic Development. Space is limited, contact email The Druker Office of Community
