Celebrating Economic Developers in May
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
May 6-11 is International Economic Development Week (EDW). It’s an opportune time to reflect on the importance of local economic development efforts to building a vibrant and sustainable community.
The International Economic Development Council created EDW in 2016 to help raise awareness for the profession. Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) are often misunderstood because our activities happen behind the scenes, outside of the public eye.
EDW is a chance to recognize economic developers, the local leaders and organizations that work tirelessly to recruit investors, develop businesses, create jobs, enhance the tax base and ultimately improve the quality of life of their communities.
