ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WEEK

Since 2016, SEDA and partner SIEDN have joined the International Economic Development Council in designating one week each May to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere.
