NBEDC Moves Forward with Creative Economy Task Force Recommendations

The New Bedford Economic Development Council is pleased to announce that Meg Albert has joined the organization as a consultant for the next three months to begin implementing the recommendations of the Creative Economy Task Force.  Meg brings to the project a long history of working with creative non-profits, cultural institutions, corporations and in the area of event management.  The NBEDC is particularly excited about Meg’s ten years with Bank of America managing its New England Community Relations and Cultural Portfolio.
With the NBEDC and members of the Task Force, Meg will work on establishing a creative calendar and city-wide marketing strategy for the creative economy; defining a creative micro enterprise loan fund strategy; and ensuring that the creative economy is incorporated into all aspects of the City’s economic development activities and planning.
The NBEDC, on behalf of the City, has applied for funding through the Mass Cultural Council.  If successful in the process, the NBEDC will establish a Creative Economy Development Office within the NBEDC and will roll out many more of the recommendations of the Task Force.   NBEDC Executive Director, Matthew A. Morrissey, anticipates a national search for the new position of creative economy development officer in January.
