Community & Economic Development Program

SEDA developed the foundational program Introduction to Community and Economic Development Program in 1996. We refine the four module program on a biannual basis to keep current with the ever-changing nature of local and regional communities.


Module 1: Establishing a Foundation 

Module 2: The Professional 

Module 3: The Planning Continuum 

Module 4: Economic Development Strategies 


What past program participants have said:

"I have received many useful tools in understanding proper behavior and protocol to use in an economic development position."

"This is excellent for new economic development officers...the manual material will be very useful."

"The presenters were excellent."
