Championing Vitality in Colorado

Promoting a Vibrant Colorado economy

As EconDev professionals, we know just how important economic development is to a community’s well-being and quality of life. We also know that creating long-lasting and meaningful change requires the support and collaboration of the citizens within each community. It is our responsibility to celebrate the programs and services offered by our local, regional, and state economic development organizations.

Activate Your Community & Support Network

Colorado is a diverse state, however, in every region and community, we find that change is inevitable. When it comes to championing change, it’s critical to build your economic development team, engage elected officials, and highlight your achievements.

Utilize our Community Activation Checklist to rally the troops, build hype for economic development, and engage elected officials.

Share Your Community Success Story

The best way to highlight your achievements and gain additional support is by sharing your economic development success stories. Submit your stories to EDCC, and we will publish them to our full network!
