The International Economic Development Council (IEDC [International Economic Development Council] ) has announced the roster of Economic Development leaders that will serve on the organization’s Education and Certification Advisory Committee in 2022. Jenny Mizutowicz, CEcD [Certified Economic Developer] , manager of Economic Development Initiatives for The University of Texas at Dallas, will serve as chair on the Education and Certification Advisory Committee.

“We look forward to the service that this exceptional selection of professionals will bring in 2022,” said Todd Greene, CEcD [Certified Economic Developer] , 2022 IEDC [International Economic Development Council] board chair and president and executive director of Work Rise, Urban Institute, “I cannot wait to see what we will accomplish together going forward.”

The Education and Certification Advisory Committee assists in the development of new CEcD [Certified Economic Developer] exam content and provides input to help shape the relevancy and content of professional development courses, including advanced courses. The committee monitors complimentary and competitive education offerings by outside groups within the economic development industry. The work of this committee will include reviewing questionable CEcD applications in which the candidate’s eligibility cannot be clearly determined by staff; disputed “failed” results of the CEcD exam; applications for level two re-certification credits; and applications for Basic Economic Development Course accreditation. The committee will oversee the Re-accreditation of Basic Economic Development Courses on a 3-year cycle. This Committee reports to the Performance Oversight and Monitoring Committee. Due to the nature of the content discussed and reviewed, this committee is open only to current CEcDs.

The International Economic Development Council is a non-profit membership organization serving economic developers. With more than 5,000 members, IEDC [International Economic Development Council] is the largest organization of its kind. Economic developers promote economic well-being and quality of life for their communities, by creating, retaining and expanding jobs that facilitate growth, enhance wealth and provide a stable tax base. From public to private, rural to urban, and local to international, IEDC’s members are engaged in the full range of economic development experience. Given the breadth of economic development work, our members are employed in a wide variety of settings including local, state, provincial and federal governments, public-private partnerships, chambers of commerce, universities and a variety of other institutions. IEDC’s members create high-quality jobs, develop vibrant communities and improve the quality of life in their regions.
