TEDC Presents Balch Springs Economic Development Corporation Recipient of the 2020 Economic Excellence Recognition at the 2021 Legislative Conference

The Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) announced the recipients of its annual Economic Excellence Recognition program for 2020.   The awards were presented on Tuesday, February 23rd, during the TEDC’s 2021 Legislative Conference hosted virtually, February 22-26, 2021.

 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.

Balch Springs Economic Development Corporations are one of fifty-one (51) economic development organizations that received the TEDC’s 2020 Economic Excellence Recognition. 

“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 Texas Economic Development Council, established in 1961, is an Austin-based, statewide, non-profit professional association, dedicated to the development of economic and employment opportunities in Texas. The TEDC provides information, educational and legislative services to more than 850 members. Our objective is to support the economic growth of Texas and develop strategies that promote a positive business climate in the state.
