Community Spotlight

The AEDCE Community Spotlight highlights something new, innovative, or noteworthy that is happening in one of our amazing Arkansas communities.

This month we take a look at Wynne and the recent renovations and new development they’ve undertaken as a result of a sales tax benefiting economic development projects – including Parks & Tourism. Wynne has also been very aggressive in seeking grant funds and to date, has been awarded $1.25M to assist with their development projects.

Arkansas Economic Developers & Chamber Executives (AEDCE) is the state’s premier association representing professional and volunteer economic developers and chamber executives in Arkansas.  Previously organized as two separate entities, (Arkansas Economic Developers and Arkansas Chamber of Commerce Executives) the two associations merged in 2016 to create a stronger, more efficient, and unified alliance.  AEDCE’s objective is to advance, through educational and professional efforts, the business climate and quality of life in Arkansas by the development of employment opportunities through economic growth and community development.  This is accomplished through education, advocacy and our connected network of association members.

Membership in AEDCE is available to anyone with an interest in the economic and community development of Arkansas.  Our membership covers all parts and aspects of the economic development and chamber industry in Arkansas, from rural to urban areas and everything in between.  This allows us to provide a broad array of resources and expertise in the chamber and economic development fields.

AEDCE is a 501 (c) 6 organization that is housed at the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce/AIA.  The staff and board of AEDCE are dedicated to providing leadership and a vision to advance economic development and chamber professionals in Arkansas.
