The team captured the "Regional Collaboration and Partnership Project" award at last week's Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) conference for their 2021 Flagstaff Crafted Fall/Winter Gift Guide.

"It is an honour to receive this award and to proudly showcase all of the amazing small businesses who participated in the gift guide!" says Shaina George, Flagstaff County Economic Development Coordinator.

Every year, the EDA presents its Awards of Excellence, honouring and recognizing the province’s best economic development programs, partnerships and professionals that have made significant contributions to the profession.

The theme of this year's conference was "Renew, Rise, and Reposition." During the three-day conference, held in Kananaskis, our Economic Development team received updates on economic development issues and trends, listened to insightful keynote speakers, and enjoyed interactive networking opportunities.

The team's bi-annual gift guide is a visual collection of products and services intended to showcase the unique and incredible options that are available locally.

Stay tuned for the launch of our 2022 Flagstaff Crafted Spring/Summer Collection! The release date will be announced soon!
