Economic Development Committee (EDC)

The Economic Development Committee (EDC) is a part of the strategic planning process of FVWDB. EDC works closely with the Labor Market Analyst, and other information resources, to understand the dynamics and needs of area employers as well as the required skills of the local workforce. EDC is responsible for oversight of marketing strategies and/or public relations related to best practices and solutions. It is also responsible for oversight of the development of Pilot Projects in addressing employers' needs as related to the FVWDB. EDC brings important issues to the full Board for consideration after having discussed action plans which address identified needs.

Our Goals

    1. Provide support to small businesses by conducting sessions in which needs are identified and resources are provided to prevent business failure and promote growth and success.
    2. Start a business networking group in order to better support area businesses and potential entrepreneurs.
    3. Develop a finance and insurance alliance to better align resources and facilitate communication.
    4. Create job opportunities and facilitate economic growth.
