Board of Directors 2013-2014
WEDA's committees connect the activities of WEDA to interest groups within our membership. Committees work with the coordinator and board members on projects and programs in their areas of interest. Many committees are only active for short durations during the year as needed, so they won't require huge time commitments. This is a great way for our members to get involved and learn more about the workings of WEDA and the State. A lot happens between our membership meetings and joining a committee is a great way to get up to speed. For information about serving on any of these committees, please contact the WEDA office.
The Legislative Committee works with WEDA members to determine economic development issues that will affect their organizations and communities, publishes an annual WEDA Legislative Issues handout, creates legislative tools, and advises the WEDA lobbyist.
