National Economic Development Week 2024

The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) is partnering with the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) to celebrate Economic Development Week from Monday, May 6 to Friday, May 10, 2024. The City of Pflugerville and PCDC are joining other municipalities and counties across North America to recognize the contributions made by professional economic developers to create more economically vibrant and livable communities.

“As the local and regional economies evolve, the economic development profession must remain agile and responsive to change. The expertise of dedicated economic development professionals and organizations is vital in cultivating sustainable growth and prosperity,” said IEDC President & CEO Nathan Ohle. “This year’s Economic Development Week will showcase innovative community leadership driving collaboration and creating opportunities in their communities. I hope our communities and economic developers around the world will join us in celebrating the accomplishments of a profession full of passionate changemakers and community builders.”

The IEDC created Economic Development Week in 2016 to recognize the work that economic development organizations and professionals do in their communities. IEDC celebrates Economic Development Week every year, highlighting the programs, best practices, and exceptional individuals that positively impact life in their communities. In just a few years the event has become one of the most widely recognized awareness weeks of its kind validating the, often unheralded, work of the economic development profession.

"Economic Development Week is an essential time for us to recognize and celebrate the dedicated efforts of economic development professionals," said Amy Madison, Executive Director of the PCDC. "These professionals work tirelessly to drive growth and innovation, laying the groundwork for vibrant communities and enhanced living standards. This week shines a light on the pivotal role they play and underscores the importance of supporting their endeavors to build a more prosperous future for all." 

Throughout the week, the PCDC will share a range of content on social media related to economic development. Additionally, we invite everyone to our Eco Dev Week Drop-In on May 8, 2024, from 11 am to 1 pm. This event is not only a chance to enjoy FREE tacos and Italian ice but also a great opportunity for attendees to network and learn more about the PCDC and the field of economic development.
