Acumen was a proud sponsor and exhibitor at OEDA’s (Oregon Economic Development Association) Annual Fall Conference in Klamath Falls. The conference is an opportunity for Oregon’s economic development community to come together and offers pertinent information on the latest in economic development, Oregon trends, and Oregon’s economic future.
