February 15, 2018 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM )

On Thursday, February 15, 2018 at Noon, UI Extension's Local Government Education program will host Ben Wilson, Director of Economic Development at the Village of Matteson, IL; member of their Enterprise Zone Board and the Illinois Enterprise Zone Association. This webinar will educate local officials and economic development professionals on knowledge of code and how it pertains to communities and initiatives in Illinois.

Since late 2015, Benjamin Wilson has served as the Director of Economic Development for the Village of Matteson.  Prior to coming to the Village, Ben worked at a regional planning commission located in north central Illinois.  For more than a decade, Ben has offered his community and economic development expertise to local governments.

In his current capacity, Ben will be working with village staff to supplement existing efforts to promote economic development.  Ben's expertise encompasses a full suite of community and economic development services, including grant writing, downtown revitalization, business attraction and retention, land use planning, enterprise zone administration, and incentive package development.  He currently serves as the President of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Association.

There is no cost to attend the webinar; however, registration will be required. Contact Ken Larimore at larimore@illinois.edu for more information.
