The Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) recognized the Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) as a recipient of its annual Economic Excellence Recognition program for 2022. The awards were presented on Friday, February 24th, during the TEDC’s 2023 Legislative Conference in Austin, Texas.
The Economic Excellence Recognition program provides recognition to economic development organizations that meet a desired threshold of professionalism. Recipients qualify for recognition based on training taken by their governing board/council as well as the economic development director and professional staff. Certifications, professional memberships and activities, and organizational effectiveness of the economic development staff also contribute to the standards for qualification.
“The TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program is one of the ways in which our organization honors the outstanding commitment to excellence of our communities and regions, their leaders, and their economic development professionals have toward the professionalization of their economic development efforts,” noted Carlton Schwab, President/CEO of the TEDC.”
The Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) was established in 1994 to create, attract, retain, and expand economic opportunities for Seguin businesses and its residents. The SEDC takes a holistic approach to economic development by continuously evaluating what Seguin needs to grow and be successful. The SEDC is involved in all aspects of economic development, including business recruitment, business retention, small business development, and workforce development.
“Economic Development is a team sport, and the SEDC prides itself on the relationships that we have formed with our existing businesses and other economic development stakeholders. The growth and success that Seguin has sustained over the past several years is a testament to this team first approach,” said SEDC Executive Director Josh Schneuker. “It’s an honor to receive state-level recognition from the TEDC for the work that we are doing together here in Seguin. The SEDC, our existing businesses, and other economic development stakeholders stand ready to continue our work together and help Seguin grow and prosper into the future.”
