On May 17th, PEDA teamed up with Keystone Edge to host the first ever "Gather Up" event in the Susquehanna Valley. Co-hosted with Team Pennsylvania, this event, held at Rusty Rail Brewing Co. in Mifflinburg, brought members and friends of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Young Professionals together with regional economic and community development leaders. 

Amongst good drinks, food, and conversation, we were inspired to hear about the interesting and forward-thinking work going on to engage young people and help the Valley thrive. PEDA is excited to be a part of that conversation now and in the future and has underwritten a new Keystone Edge feature story to be published this month. As follow up to the event, on-the-ground work in the Valley to connect young people with economic and community development volunteer and career opportunities is also in the works for this summer.

Finally, we would also like our PEDA members in the Valley for attending the Gather Up event and representing our profession!

Meanwhile, elsewhere in PA, PEDA is joined with Keystone Edge on three "Day in the Life" visits and interviews with economic development professionals from three regions of the state:

  • Steve McKnight of Altoona Blair County Development Corporation
  • Jared Mast of Greater Easton Development Partnership
  • Katrina Vincent of Erie County Economic Development

Stories featuring Steve, Jared, and Katrina will publish on in June, July, and August, respectively. Follow Keystone Edge on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for photos from their Day in the Life visits.
