Posted by Zach Jenson on Monday, October 5, 2020

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) announces that GREATER MSP has once again been recognized as one of 69 economic development organizations accredited by IEDC as an Accredited Economic Development Organization (AEDO).

“GREATER MSP displays the professionalism, commitment, and technical expertise that is deserving of this honor”, said IEDC President and CEO Jeff Finkle.

The AEDO program is a comprehensive peer review process that measures economic development organizations against commonly held standards in the profession. The program consists of two phases: a documentation review and an onsite visit. Each phase is designed to evaluate information about the structure, organization, funding, program, and staff of the candidate economic development organization.

Earning the AEDO accreditation tells the community and prospects that GREATER MSP attained a measure of excellence assuring that their trust is well placed, and their business is in good hands.

The International Economic Development Council is the largest membership association serving economic and community development professionals in the world.
