"Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) has a proven track record of providing our members with leading edge professional development programs, best practice sharing, networking opportunities and other valuable tools to help create thriving communities. We are a member driven organization working to elevate economic development as a profession and at the same time support practitioners in their critical roles to promote sustainable long-term growth that benefits all members of our society.
EDA has a long history of innovative responses to contemporary challenges. While we are proud of the recognition we receive from national and international organizations with which we work, the best recognition comes from the tangible impact we can have in the communities which we serve.
We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with a wide range of sponsors, partners and supporters in the delivery of our mission. Economic development is often referred to as a team sport and that is true now more than ever as we face the multifaceted and complex challenges brought on by the largest public health challenge and resulting economic crisis in many generations.
EDA will continue to be dedicated to meeting the needs of our members while at the same time building strong communities - together." - Trevor Lewington, EDA President
