Sumter County Receives International Economic Development Council Accreditation

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) has recognized Sumter County as one of 61 economic development organizations accredited by IEDC as an Accredited Economic Development Organization (AEDO).
"Sumter County displays the professionalism, commitment, and technical expertise that is deserving of this honor," said IEDC President and CEO Jeff Finkle.
The AEDO program is a comprehensive peer review process that measures economic development organizations against commonly held standards in the profession. The program consists of two phases: a documentation review and an onsite visit. Each phase is designed to evaluate information about the structure, organization, funding, programs, and staff of the candidate economic development organization.
Earning the AEDO accreditation tells the community and prospects that Sumter County has attained a measure of excellence assuring that their trust is well-placed and their business is in good hands.
Maintenance of the AEDO status is required every three years and is accomplished through documentation submission and/or onsite visits by a team of the AEDO subcommittee.
