About NODE: Our Regional Economic Development Exchange

The Northeast Ohio Development Exchange (NODE) is an opportunity for public and private sector economic developers, public officials, collaborators, and leaders across industries in Ohio to meet on a regular basis. The Exchange is used to develop solid working relationships and share best practices while learning about assets in the region that can benefit the communities we represent.

In addition to gathering on a monthly basis in Brecksville, Ohio the group travels on a quarterly basis to different sites throughout the region. Additional programming during the year, such as webinars and other special events, are conducted.
