The most important aspect of the MEDC is the work performed by volunteer leadership. Joining and becoming active in one or more of the MEDC volunteer opportunities (Board, District Director, Committee or Task Force) is the most effective way for members to get involved in the MEDC and advance the goals of the economic development profession. The success of the MEDC largely depends on the talent, energy and expertise of the MEDC members and their work on various committees.
How to Get Involved
The first step is to orient yourself with the different MEDC committees and decide which committee or committees interest you the most. The next step is to contact the MEDC or the Committee Chair to express your desire to be a part of a specific committee(s). The time commitment involved in serving on a MEDC committee varies and depends on how much time you have to offer.
