The Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) has announced the recipients of its Economic Excellence Recognition program for 2017. The Cuero Development Corporation was one of the organizations recognized at the Mid-Year Conference in Galveston last week.
The 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 organizations 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.
