EDA would like to join our strategic partner the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in recognizing Economic Development Week May 8 -14, 2016.
IEDC created this week to recognize the work of economic developers. The contributions made by economic developers leads to more jobs, enriched communities, and an overall greater way of life.
How do you think EDO's can be recognized in your own communities?
We suggest social media might be a good place to start. With the hashtags #YearofEconDev and #AbEDO we invite you to Tweet about the accomplishments of your economic development professionals beginning now until the end of next week. Together lets recognize Alberta EDO's!
