Economic and Community Development

Economic Development means business recruitment and retention, but it also means fostering innovation, developing a skilled workforce, community image and branding, and promoting a conducive business climate through good public policy. Your chamber may not be responsible for business attraction, but every chamber in the country is in the business of economic development.

Learn more about ACCE's Economic and Community Development Division.

The ECD division is comprised of chamber economic development professionals, industry thought leaders and chamber CEOs charged with driving prosperity in their regions. The division convenes peer conference calls, provides online and phone answers to development related questions, offers introductions for chamber professionals with site selection consultants and crafts curriculum for ACCE events.

ACCE also assists with talent recruitment in the economic development field and undertakes targeted research on chamber economic development efforts, staff compensation, and best practices.

For information about how ACCE can help your organization advance its economic development aspirations, contact Ian Scott.
