The Emerging Executives Initiative for Young Professionals

Young professionals in economic development are eager to grow their skills and build connections that will help them move forward in their careers. That’s why the North Carolina Economic Development Association (NCEDA) created the Emerging Executives Initiative.

Designed expressly for young professionals and for members with less than two years of experience in economic development, the Emerging Executive Initiative deepens the knowledge of young economic development professionals and increases their familiarity with other aspects of economic development and policymaking in North Carolina. It provides opportunities to participate in focused professional educational opportunities and forge connections with their peers in our state’s economic development circles.

As a participant, you’ll have the opportunity to attend specialized programing at NCEDA conferences and other events. You’re especially encouraged to attend the annual Emerging Executives Forum, which is laser-focused on sharpening the knowledge and skills you need for a successful economic development career.
