Susan Cates, Director of Economic Development said, “It is an honor to receive this recognition from TEDC for the third consecutive year.

Recipients qualify for recognition based on training taken by their governing board/council as well as the economic development director and professional staff.
“The TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program is one of the ways in which our organization honors the outstanding commitment to excellence of our communities and regions, their leaders, and their economic development professionals have toward the professionalization of their economic development efforts,” noted Carlton Schwab, President/CEO of the TEDC.
