IEDC Public Policy Resources
Tools That Bring Washington to You
IEDC maintains various resources on our website that keep economic developers across the country and around the world informed and engaged.
The Washington Insider Calendar (WIC)
The Washington Insider Calendar, or WIC, is your one-stop resource for key events in Washington you need to know about. IEDC will post key Congressional hearings, committee mark-ups, policy speeches, and other events related to economic development on the WIC. If you can’t get to Washington, the vast majority of events posted on the WIC will be available via streaming video, webcast, or conference call. Know of an upcoming event that should be posted on the WIC but isn't? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Legislative Tracker
IEDC keeps our members up-to-date on key legislation related to economic development through The Legislative Tracker. The Tracker features the bill number, latest action, and links to the bill text.

The Public Policy Advisory Committee
The IEDC Board of Directors is advised on public policy matters through the Public Policy Advisory Committee (PPAC). This dedicated group of volunteers meets throughout the year to discuss current policy trends, develop content for IEDC publications, provide input for the annual Federal Economic Development Forum, and advise the Board on key economic development policy. Are you a member of IEDC and interested in joining PPAC? Submit your resume and a brief cover letter here. Space on the committee is limited and responsibility for selecting members to serve on the committee is at the discretion of the IEDC Board.
