About NODE

The Northeast Ohio Development Exchange (NODE) is an opportunity for public and private sector economic developers, public officials, and collaborators to meet on a regular basis 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, 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 also conducted.

Annual membership is $55 and covers the cost of all quarterly events. Some special events may require additional fees. For more information contact Nina Holliday, Team NEO, at (216) 363-5428 or
