MEDA holds education, training, and networking events throughout the year so economic developers can get the latest on programs and services for business, community and job growth, build their skillset, take classes for professional certification, and grow their network. MEDA's members receive a discount to a majority of our events.
MEDA's annual offerings include our Annual Meeting, Capitol Day, Emerging Leaders Spring Program, Economic Development Basic Course, International Economic Development Council's (IEDC's) Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) courses, and the Spring and Fall Economic Development Toolbox programs.
Every two to three years, or based on demand, we hold the National Development Council's (NDC'S) Economic Development Finance Professional (EDFP) certification series.
As needed, we hold regional programs and webinars.
