Each year, elected and appointed government officials and administrators from across the state improve their knowledge and skills through professional development opportunities offered by University of Illinois Extension. Participants benefit from the advanced instruction and broad expertise that instructors bring to all our programming. In 2015, more than 480 local government officials learned through webinars, workshops, and program recordings.
Join us for a discussion with David Pierson, Vic Narusis, and Amy White on Illinois economic development site selection and the LocationOne Information System (LOIS). This webinar will provide new information about how to best use LOIS. LOIS is the leading online economic development database in the U.S., representing and connecting more than 8,800 communities and 3,500 economic development organizations. Using LOIS enhances site selection in showcasing demographics, zoning, community assets, school districts, and hospitals. It allows users to track projects in real time and run customized reports.
During the webinar, our site selection experts will cover some of the major changes coming to LOIS, including what users will be allowed to post and what data is needed.
