Learn and Network with Other Young Professionals in Economic Development

NCEDA’s Emerging Executive Initiative is designed to deepen the knowledge of young economic developers, increase their familiarity with other aspects of economic development and policymaking in North Carolina, participate in focused professional educational opportunities, and forge connections with their peers in our state’s economic development circles.

Each year, NCEDA hosts an Emerging Executives Forum to help attendees become more effective and confident professionals!
