The Harlingen Economic Development Corporation is a recipient of the Texas Economic Development Council’s 2020 Economic Excellence Recognition. The award came during TEDC’s 2021 Legislative Conference hosted virtually this week.
The Economic Excellence Recognition program provides recognition to economic development organizations that meet a desired threshold of professionalism. Recipients qualify for recognition based on training taken by their governing board/council as well as the economic development director and professional staff. Certifications, professional memberships and activities, and organizational effectiveness of the economic development staff also contribute to the standards for qualification.
Harlingen EDC was one of 51 economic development organizations receiving the recognition.
“The TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program is one of the ways in which our organization honors the outstanding commitment to excellence of our communities and regions, their leaders, and their economic development professionals have toward the professionalization of their economic development efforts,” noted Carlton Schwab, President/CEO of the TEDC.
