We wish to thank all our supporters (public/private/individual) for their generous contribution given to our nonprofit organization during 2018.

We appreciate everyone’s interest and the financial support of our organization and the strong show of attendance at our quality educational events that we have hosted throughout the year.

A summary of what we worked on this past year. We began the implementation process of five goals that resulted from our work in the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy/CEDS Plan. To date, all five working groups are meeting monthly. We attended trade shows, networking events, and recruitment appointments to increase industrial development, which has resulted in many new jobs, by promoting DeKalb County and enhancing the tax base. We responded to many RFI’s and remain on multiple short lists. We also conducted a digital marketing plan to promote our distinct assets and success stories through this form of marketing. These initiatives would not be possible without the support of our contributors, those who are listed in the attached that was published on January 25th in the Daily Chronicle.

Bravo to our 2018 Economic Development Champions. We sincerely appreciate the support. We look forward to working with all on DCEDC’s 2019 goals! Stay tuned for our Fundraising Kickoff 2019 later next month. We always welcome new members, so please feel free to help us recruit new members by contacting DCEDC staff.
