Investing and Membership

Successful Economic Development of any area requires a close partnership of public and private interests.

The most meaningful testimonial that an area can provide to a prospective new industrial client is a satisfied new industry that has recently located in a community.

For that reason, we ask for all commercial and industrial businesses to be partners with us to the maximum extent possible. Their partnership reflects not only their monetary support but their commitment of time and talent to the EDC Board and its mission.

As partnership levels increase, partners are eligible for more involvement as officers and with hosting and recruiting new industry clients. Availability of information and website access will also increase as financial commitment levels increase.

The more involved our partners are, the more they will contribute and/or will benefit from their EDC membership.
