Economic vitality is key to every community

The Oregon Economic Development Association (OEDA) can be your best resource for training, best practices, connections, and national recruitment opportunities.  In addition, OEDA is the only statewide group of economic development leaders advocating for legislative support for critical economic development priorities, programs, and initiatives.

As an OEDA member, you have access to:

  • A Statewide Network

    OEDA connects you to over 85 economic development professionals including state, federal, and regional partners.

  • Executive Training

    Comprehensive training programs featuring regional and national speakers will help you stay on the cutting edge of the profession. OEDA offers high-caliber training programs including Spring Workshops, a Collaboration Summit each summer, and an annual three-day conference in the Fall.

  • A Voice at the State Level

    OEDA continues to educate legislators about economic development positions on programs, initiatives, and bills that are important to our members. OEDA will develop a legislative strategy and key messages to advocate for economic development.

Many communities value their investment in an OEDA membership. We are looking forward to helping you develop your communities.

OEDA is excited to share that our Membership Benefits have received a much-needed update for the first time since its incorporation in 1995!
