NCEDA’s Resources

NCEDA is the professional trade association supporting economic development professionals in North Carolina, and our website is designed to support the needs of our members.

NCEDA strives to serve as a clearinghouse for its members, giving them access to educational content and other resources in support of the important tasks they perform on behalf of our communities, our regions and our state. We work closely with a variety of state, regional and national associations to provide networking opportunities, educational sessions and legislative information to our members.

North Carolina is home to many qualified economic development professionals. If you’re interested in bringing a project to North Carolina, please contact the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina. Click HERE to view their 2021 Annual Report!

And, if you’d like to know more about how North Carolina pursues employers and encourages business growth within the state, please download NCEDA’s Economic Development Handbook.
