Over the weekend, participants at the IAMC Spring 2015 Professional Forum volunteered their time at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.

As the IAMC forums are always an educational and memorable experience for attendees, there is never a more fulfilling experience than the IAMC Volunteer Service Projects.  Over the years, forum attendees have planted trees, built homes, and directly delivered support to those who need it the most.  This year, the service project volunteers cleaned offices, organized food and supply storage, and assisted with food preparations at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.

Founded in 1971, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has provided food, clothing, and showers to thousands of families in the valley.  On an annual basis, the mission provides more than 175,000 hot meals to individuals that are homeless and needy.  For more information about the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, please take the time to visit their website.

With another successful IAMC Volunteer Service Project in the books, many of the attendees are already looking forward to the next opportunity to give back to their own communities.  Whether on a grand scale, or on the individual level, any and all volunteer work is vital.  As the ancient Greek fabulist, Aesop, wrote, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

SiteTrends: H&A releases report on new economic development policies and incentives in 2015

HA-Legislative-Update-2015

Hickey & Associates, a global site location, incentive advisory, and workplace solutions firm, released the firm’s new report on the changes to economic development policies and public incentives in the U.S. over the initial months of 2015.  The report, H&A Legislative and Incentive Update – Spring 2015, is a comprehensive study of legislative activities related to business incentives and economic development initiatives across all U.S. states.

With every state legislature in session this year, lawmakers have been active in dealing with legislation directly tied to economic development.  Several states have seen expansions and growth to existing incentive programs, while others have eliminated or significantly limited economic development policies.  As the economy improves, and competition between the states becomes even more prevalent, economic development measures and incentives are often a key factor in the decision making process for business site decisions.

For a complimentary copy of the H&A Legislative and Incentive Update – Spring 2015, please download your copy now.

To learn more about the trends and actions around the U.S. dealing with economic development policies and public incentives, you are invited to join H&A experts for a complimentary webinar covering the new report. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss with H&A experts the changes that are taking place or being considered, as well as, hear about best practices for analyzing and capturing these incentives around the country, particularly in light of the new policies and laws now in place.

Following a brief presentation on the report, the H&A experts will open up the webinar for an extensive question and answer session with participants for more detailed policy insight.  To join this exciting webinar, please Register Here.
