Conroe EDC Earns Fifth Consecutive Economic Excellence Distinction
CONROE, TX – The Conroe Economic Development Council (CEDC) was awarded Economic Excellence Recognition from the Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) for the fifth year in a row. The 2022 award was announced during the TEDC’s 2023 Legislative Conference held in Austin, Texas, February 22-24.
TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program provides recognition to economic development organizations that meet a desired threshold of professionalism. Recipients qualify for recognition based on training taken by their governing board/council as well as the economic development director and professional staff. Certifications, professional memberships and activities, and organizational effectiveness of the economic development staff also contribute to the standards for qualification.
“The TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program is one of the ways in which our organization honors the outstanding commitment to excellence of our communities and regions, their leaders, and their economic development professionals have toward the professionalization of their economic development efforts,” noted Carlton Schwab, President/CEO of the TEDC.
The CEDC is one of only fifty-four economic development organizations across Texas that received the recognition.
“Thank you to the TEDC for recognizing us as one of the state’s top economic development organizations. It is an honor to be acknowledged among our peers,” said CEDC Executive Director Danielle Scheiner. “Our staff and boards are deeply dedicated to serving the Conroe community with the utmost professionalism. We cherish the opportunity to continue advancing the Conroe economy through our efforts.”
The mission of the Conroe Economic Development Council is to enhance the strength and stability of the greater Conroe economy through the support of existing industry and the attraction of manufacturing and service sector business, which bring new capital and employment opportunities into the community.
The Texas Economic Development Council, established in 1961, is an Austin-based, statewide, non-profit professional association, dedicated to the development of economic and employment opportunities in Texas. The TEDC provides information, educational and legislative services to more than 950 members. The organization’s objective is to support the economic growth of Texas and develop strategies that promote a positive business climate in the state.
