Economic Development Advisory Committee

The Economic Development Advisory Committee convenes leadership from private sector organizations to advise the Council on matters related to economic development, job creation and retention, and workforce training. The group oversees the development of the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), adopted by the Council, which serves as the gateway to infrastructure investments by the U.S. Economic Development Administration. The CEDS is coordinated with other regional plans that help drive infrastructure funding from other federal and state agencies.
