College Station salutes productive partnerships during Economic Development Week

By Tim Neeley, Business Development Manager

As part of Economic Development Week, the City of College Station celebrates and recognizes the contributions of professional economic developers in helping build economically vibrant and livable communities.

The International Economic Development Council, the largest international professional trade association for economic developers, created Economic Development Week in 2016 to raise awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere.           

“Economic developers play essential roles in promoting their communities’ economic health and vitality — a fact that has only been proven further by the events of the past two years,” IEDC President CEO Nathan Ohle said. “Economic Development Week recognizes, honors, and celebrates the ingenuity of leadership practitioners in creating an equitable and prosperous future.”

The City of College Station sincerely thanks the many organizations across our community that partner with us to bring continued economic prosperity to the Brazos Valley, including the Texas A&M University System, Texas A&M University, Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation, City of Bryan, Brazos County, Brazos Valley Council of Governments, Invest Brazos Valley, and the Brazos Valley Small Business Development Center.
