As of Saturday, February 23, 2013
Mid-Columbia Economic Development District (MCEDD) has opened the process to nominate applicants for its budget committee.
Applicants must be representative of the services provided by MCEDD. The MCEDD region consists of Klickitat, Skamania, Hood River, Wasco and Sherman counties. All positions are non-paid.
MCEDD is governed by a 20-member Board representing its members and the key economic interests in the region.
MCEDD Budget Committee interest forms are available electronically at www.mcedd.org or at the MCEDD offices at 515 East Second Street in The Dalles. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8, 2013 for consideration of appointment.
Appointments are made for a three year period. For more information, contact MCEDD at 541-296-2266.
MCEDD promotes the creation of family-wage jobs, the diversification of the economic base, and the growth, development and retention of business and industry.
MCEDD was established in 1969 by Klickitat, Skamania, Hood River, Wasco, and Sherman counties to benefit from better access to economic development loans and grants, pooled technical assistance, marketing, and administrative resources, and a regional approach to economic development efforts. Over the years MCEDD’s membership has grown to include counties, cities, ports and chambers of commerce within the five county region.
MCEDD retains the distinction of being the only regionally focused economic development agency in the Mid-Columbia and therefore the agency most appropriate to serve as lead agency for the Economic Development Administration.
