What can an IEDC Award offer your organization?

Winners of IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development Awards must demonstrate to our experienced panel of judges that they are at the forefront of the economic development profession. We recognize only the most successful, innovative, and effective leaders, programs, partnerships, and promotional materials. Award recipients gain valuable publicity and exposure to their peers in the economic development field.

2014 is the year for you to share what you've done!

Winners will be recognized at the 2014 IEDC Annual Conference in Fort Worth, TX, from October 19-22.
