Arkansas Economic Developers and Chamber Executives (AEDCE) seeks to enable economic development success for its members through building strong relationships and providing necessary resources. No one in economic development works alone…it’s a TEAM sport. AEDCE creates a collaborative environment for its members to share best practices to ensure we attain economic development success in our own communities and regions throughout the state of Arkansas.

As the 2019 AEDCE Board Chairman, I ask that you please join us in our efforts to retain and recruit members so we can continue to grow Arkansas. If you would like to learn more, please contact Shelley Short in the AEDCE office at shelley@aedce.org.
