Welcome and thanks for stopping by the Arkansas Economic Developers & Chamber Executives (AEDCE) website.  AEDCE works hard to improve the business climate and quality of life for Arkansans through several educational and professional development efforts. We are proud to create a collaborative environment for our members to share best practices, build strong relationships and provide them with necessary resources for our communities and regions throughout Arkansas to grow and thrive.

As the 2020 AEDCE Board Chairman, I would like to encourage you to join our efforts to retain and recruit members so we can continue to grow Arkansas. If you would like to learn more, please contact AEDCE Executive Director, Shelley Short, at shelley@aedce.org.
