Kick up your professional development
Please promote Florida Economic Development Week with this toolkit
Economic development in all its various disciplines is vital to Florida’s competitiveness and prosperity.
We believe that, as an engine for progress, economic development should be recognized through a dedicated week of emphasis.
FEDC has designed this initiative to raise the general public’s awareness of the importance of economic development for Florida communities and to deepen the understanding and appreciation of the work and value of economic, workforce and community developers’ contributions to Florida’s business climate, job retention and growth, tax base and overall quality of life.
Governor DeSantis has issued a proclamation supporting our 2022 efforts.
