What Others are Saying About EDCC

What a great event!  It generated some ideas for me, some reminders, and some great reinforcement of information.  The EDCC conferences and events always give me a dose of energy for what I do.

Bryon Taylor, The Modular Workshop

“EDCC’s conferences provide an opportunity for learning from policy leaders and economic development experts, and networking with ED leaders from across the state. The strength of the network means I have a local contact in nearly every county in the state as I strive to stay informed about economic issues facing local communities around Colorado.”

Brian Lewandowski, Executive Director, University of Colorado


 “In accord with its mission, Tri-State has an ongoing interest in promoting responsible growth and economic diversification across rural Colorado – including many of the state’s most remote and economically disadvantaged communities. Only through EDCC are we able to connect and collaborate with such a wide array of professionals, organizations and public entities who share that goal and have the capacity to make a real difference.” 

Drew Kramer, Economic Development Program Manager, Tri-State Generation & Transmission 

“Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) has a long-standing partnership with EDCC and has been a strong supporter of EDCC’s mission to serve Colorado’s business communities.  CHFA greatly values this partnership, not only because we share a mission to strengthen economic development in Colorado, but EDCC also helps CHFA grow our connections to businesses and organizations across the state.”
