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.

"AEDO accreditation gives us much greater credibility with our key constituents, including elected officials and the business community. The rigorous review process measures us against the best in the business. It’s a great source of pride for our board, investors, employees, and all those we come in contact with.”
