When you become a member of the EDPA you are not just joining another organization, you are joining a network of professionals to learn and grow within the economic development environment. All members have access to the other members which allows everyone to network and connect with.
EDPA also hosts an annual conference which provides an in-person networking opportunity. The conference is generally held in the late summer/early fall annually. The conference is a great way to connect with others who share the same economic development passions.
