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 on a majority of our events.
MEDA's annual offerings include our Annual Meeting, Capitol Day, Emerging Leaders Spring Training, Economic Development Basic Course, International Economic Development Council's (IEDC's) Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) courses, Spring and Fall Economic Development Toolbox programs, and Webinars.
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.
In 2021, MEDA added a Webinar Subscription Service to save cost for member EDO's on hours of training for their entire staff.
As needed, we hold regional programs and webinars.
