“The International Economic Development Council’s coursework to achieve Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) includes relevant and useful information for any professional in the economic development space, including tribal economic development. While there is a myriad of unique structural challenges to working in tribal economic development, this coursework lays a strong foundation to understand theoretical and practical ways to organize, plan and implement broad economic development initiatives. I highly recommend any tribal economic development professional explore these offerings to help jumpstart thinking around ways that tribal economies can be competitive communities for investment.”
