AVALANCHE'S PICKS FOR YOUR HOLIDAY READING LIST
 
Whether you're nesting at home or adventuring afar, the holidays are a great time to catch up on reading.  But, where to begin?  With today's broadening definition of economic development, the range of topics that influence the future of our communities can feel a bit overwhelming. To help, our team members recommended a few of their favorite reads.

AVALANCHE IN ACTION

2017 may be coming to a close, but we're not winding down! In November, we traversed the country to see old friends and new ones, too. Jennifer and Amy made their first visit to charming Winchester VA to kick off a Strategy for the EDA of the City of Winchester. Next, we finalized the CATLYST Strategy for the Atlanta Regional Commission and led an implementation workshop with our fabulous 65-member Strategy Committee.  Beautiful New Mexico was the next stop on our journey, where Amy presented at the  Sandoval Economic Alliance Quarterly Luncheon. And, just before Thanksgiving, we returned to Northeast Florida where we reunited with our dear friends in JAXUSA .  

After a busy month, we were thankful for our laid-back Thanksgivings with friends and family.  

Here are a few snapshots of Avalanche in action:
