FEDC educates, advocates for, and connects Florida’s economic development professionals.
Florida Economic Development Council
The Florida Economic Development Council is the professional association of economic, workforce, and community developers. These professionals work in Florida’s 67 counties, 400+ cities, 24 workforce regions, 28 colleges, 12 universities, as well as utilities, ports, airports, and industrial authorities.
FEDC’s members are among the highest credentialed professionals in the industry – many with advanced degrees in finance, business, IT, engineering, planning and real estate.
The staff, board members, regional directors, and committee members of the Florida Economic Development Council dedicate themselves to providing leadership and vision to advance economic development professionals and economic development throughout the state of Florida as a whole.
We develop, promote, and provide continuing professional development and best practices for our members. We enable our members to remain aware and stay ahead of the changes in state economic development programs and best practices.
Our premier event is our Annual Florida Economic Development Conference, where members can connect and network with legislators and industry professionals from both the private and public sector.
We are an active presence at our state’s capitol in Tallahassee. Our professional team works year round to develop and promote sound economic development policy in the legislature.
We provide our members with pertinent legislative updates so that they may educate their community and proactively advance our state’s economy.
FEDC provides its members a real-time and interactive means of connecting with one another. We connect Florida’s network of economic developers through our ever-improving communications and events.
We also distribute the state’s economic development news daily through our website, social media, and email newsletters. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. And don’t forget to join our email list.
