Events for Economic Development Professionals

North Carolina Economic Development Association (NCEDA) members have many opportunities to expand their knowledge and sharpen their professional skills at NCEDA’s conferences and other events throughout the year.

Our conferences are built around content-rich learning sessions focused on practical topics, such as workforce development and attraction, site development, trends in business incentives, legislative action, career development, and community marketing and branding. They also provide opportunities to meet with peers from throughout the state, as well as with connections in real estate, site selection, and corporate management. Attendees leave with information and contacts that will allow them to better serve their communities.

Networking luncheons provide a convenient way to make and renew connections with other economic development professionals, and for informal sharing and learning. Participation is an excellent way to raise one’s professional profile in the North Carolina economic development community.
