International Economic Development Council

In 2001, the American Economic Development Council (AEDC) and the Council for Urban Economic Development (CUED) merged to form the world’s preeminent organization of economic developers: the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). On the occasion of IEDC’s recently-passed tenth anniversary, this web site celebrates the evolution of the economic development profession, the contributions of these organizations, and the story of the merger. In addition to IEDC’s tenth anniversary, 2011 marked 85 years since AEDC was founded, 44 years since CUED was established, and 25 years of President & CEO Jeff Finkle’s service to both CUED and IEDC.
