University Economic Development Association

It is hard to believe it is June already, some six months have passed since I assumed the role of Executive Director. The team and I have been enjoying getting to know many of you and working hard to deliver quality service to all members of our association. I wanted to remind you that I look forward to hearing from you as you want to share your thoughts on our work and the services you want to see us provide in the future. I would also be very interested in hearing about any concerns that you may have. I can be reached at 216-200-8332 or

I also wanted to take a moment to relay a couple of important items that I hope you can act on soon.
