The organization was a recipient of the Texas Economic Development Council’s Economic Excellence Recognition for the second time.

In February, at its Winter Conference in San Antonio, the Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) recognized the Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) as one of its 2023 Economic Excellence Recognition program recipients.

Recipients of this honor qualify based on training taken by their governing board or council, economic development director, and professional staff. Other considerations include certifications, professional memberships and activities, and organizational effectiveness of the economic development staff.

“We are honored to receive the Texas Economic Development Council’s Economic Excellence Recognition,” shares Adrian Cannady, President and CEO of Temple EDC. “Receiving this award from TEDC reaffirms our dedication to fostering a vibrant economic environment and underscores the impact of our efforts in not only advancing Temple but also setting a benchmark for economic development in Texas. We are motivated more than ever to continue our pursuit of excellence, innovation, and community growth.”

The TEDC’s Economic Excellence Recognition program not only rewards organizations that meet their standards of professionalism, but also encourages economic development professionals and volunteers throughout Texas to continue strengthening their knowledge and skills.

“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,” said Carlton Schwab, TEDC President and CEO, in the press release announcing the recipients.
