By: Staff Report

RALEIGH — The North Carolina Economic Development Association recently launched a new website.

The website, which can be seen at, was launched in time for members to register for the association’s Fall Conference, which will take place Oct 17-18 at the Renaissance Asheville in Asheville.

“This new website was built with our members in mind. It’s highly intuitive and is exactly what we were looking for. It will be an effective tool for providing quality information to North Carolina’s economic development community, our public and private stakeholders, and the general public,” said Steve Yost, the association’s president and president of North Carolina’s Southeast Regional Economic Development Partnership.

The statewide association consists of economic development professionals — including local, regional, and state economic developers, architects, commercial developers, financial professionals, utility representatives, academics, and others sharing a common vision for and interest in ensuring economic prosperity for North Carolina. It provides professional development, networking, advocacy, and information services for its members.

The website was created by Brand Acceleration, an award-winning full-service marketing and public relations firm that works exclusively in the economic development industry.
