The NCEDA Annual Conference

NCEDA’s Annual Conference is the prime opportunity each year for economic development professionals from throughout North Carolina to expand their knowledge, sharpen their skills, and build connections so they can advance their careers and better serve the needs of their communities.

This large and well-attended conference is held every June, providing abundant opportunities for reconnecting with friends and colleagues. We choose a coastal location to set a relaxing tone and give members an opportunity to bring their families along to enjoy the beauty and recreation of North Carolina’s coast.
