Thirty-eight graduate from the
Mid-South Basic Economic Development Course
In it's 17th year, the Mid-South Basic Economic Development Course (MSBEDC) is an essential first step for those entering the economic development profession. Accredited through the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), the Mid-South Course is one of around 25 such courses offered throughout the country.
The thirty-eight participants in this year's 4-day course included attendees from four states and consisted of four newly elected mayors, AEDC representatives, local economic developers & chamber professionals, and employees of utility operators and nonprofit organizations.
AEDCE is proud to be the host of the course and for the commitment those attending have made to further their economic development training. We are also thankful for the numerous sponsors that helped make the Mid-South Course a tremendous success.
