Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) marks the week of May 8 to May 12, 2023, as Economic Development Week. During this week, communities across North America will celebrate and recognize the contributions made by professional economic developers to create more economically vibrant and livable communities.
Created in 2016 by International Economic Development Council (IEDC), the largest international professional trade association for economic developers, Economic Development Week aims to increase awareness for local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere.
“This week, we celebrate the important role economic developers and development organizations play in promoting local economic growth,” said Nicole Sedlacek, NPPD Economic Development Manager. “We appreciate the innovative thinking of our local partners and look forward to helping community leaders build thriving, resilient and prosperous communities across Nebraska.”
