Economic Development Week was created by The International Economic Development Council in commemoration of its 90-year anniversary as the largest professional membership organization for economic developers.
Economic developers are charged with generating economic growth, creating better jobs for residents and facilitating an improved quality of life. The industry remains as complex, challenging and rewarding as ever.
The economic development efforts provided by economic developers are being showcased this week nationally. Members of Congress are also highlighting the work of our nation’s economic developers through special resolutions that are appearing in the Congressional Record.
The City of Madison encourages economic development. Streamlining approvals and providing excellent customer service support our efforts to make the City’s economic engine run effectively.
