Message from the Board of Directors

June 11, 2015 – The Board of Directors of the Columbia Economic Development Corporation (CEDC), after evaluating the mission, operation and structure of the organization, has made the determination to move forward with a reorganization plan.  A cornerstone of this plan will be a move to a full time Executive Director. 

While CEDC appreciates the support provided by the County of Columbia in allowing Ken Flood to act as its Executive Director on a part-time basis, it is apparent to the Board that CEDC needs a full time Executive Director to achieve its mission of promoting economic development in Columbia County. 

A special Management Committee consisting of Sarah Sterling, Colin Stair, Tony Jones, and David Crawford will work with existing staff to continue all programs and initiatives as the organization works to identify its full time Executive Director. 

The Board is committed to maintaining its level of service to the community while working to reorganize and improve the manner in which CEDC operates.
