National Economic Development Week

This year the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) is partnering with the Economic Development Council of Colorado (EDCC) to celebrate the work of local economic developers like you during National Economic Development Week, May 8-13.

Economic Development Week is an ideal time to bring supporters in your community together to learn about programs your economic development office offers. It is also a great time to share successes your EDO has seen in the prior year. Here are a few reasons why you may want to create a special Economic Development Week campaign for your community:

  • Recognition by your community of achievements with economic development
  • Exposure of the economic development industry as a driving force behind local economies
  • Highlight interaction between economic development organizations and community members

To assist with your planning, OEDIT has created a Colorado-specific Economic Development Week Toolkit, which includes:

  • Links to sample proclamations which can be passed by your local leadership to help recognize your work
  • Links to sample press release which you may download, modify and distribute
  • Sample blog you can customize and post on your website
  • Sample social media posts and contest information
