The Countdown Begins

May 23, 2013

What everyone in the world wants is a good job.

It sounds simple enough. If a region can create these so calledgood’ jobs, then it will prosper. But how do we do this? Cue Gallup Chairman Jim Clifton.

Clifton, author of The Coming Jobs War, says we should focus on creating good jobs because as jobs go, so does the fate of nations. Economic stability hinges on leadership’s ability to create these good jobs. San Diego, with its geographic destiny and strong business climate, must continue to leverage its assets and traded economies – military, tourism and innovation – to pull ahead in the great jobs race.

Fast forward to less than a week from now, we’ll be sitting at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hearing Jim Clifton discuss how San Diego can get ahead in the race for good jobs at EDC’s 48th Annual Dinner.

For the past 47 years, EDC’s Annual Dinner has been full of excitement, celebrating the Mega-Region’s rich and diverse businesses. With more than 850 elected officials, and community and business leaders in attendance, this year promises to be no different.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the generous support of our numerous sponsors and investors, and our dinner underwriter, Point Loma Nazarene University.

Register here for the dinner and make sure to join the conversation on twitter #EDCAnnualDinner
