Time flies when you’re having fun–I was Chairman of this 700 member professional membership organization 30 years ago. A lot of good people doing really good things. I snuck in thinking no one would notice.
CALED’s 40 years of economic development leadership is inextricably linked to and made possible by the contributions of many individuals and organizations. As part of our year-round celebration, we are honoring 40 people and organizations that helped CALED reach our 40 year anniversary. Reaching this milestone as the world is dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is especially meaningful as we are once again reminded of the valuable role economic developers play in economic recovery and resiliency. CALED is pleased to be the association serving and representing California’s local economic developers, and we are grateful for the contributions of our 40 at 40 that help allow us to proactively help during this unique time.
