AEDO Means EDO Credibility

Recognizing the professional excellence of organizations in the field, status as an Accredited Economic Development Organization (AEDO) says to your community that your organization is the leading authority on economic-related issues.

AEDO's real strength is with important audiences who affect the lives of EDOs. The accreditation gives its recipient credibility with key constituencies, among them is its board of directors, local funding source(s), and elected officials...even prospective employees.

"Our organization benefitted greatly by the AEDO certification process, putting us through a rigorous exercise aimed at measuring us against the best in our business. Once achieved, AEDO certification became a source of pride and accomplishment for our board of directors, our staff and our elected officials."

Denny Coleman, CEcD, FM, HLM
