    Join us in our first Community Economic Development 101 webinar of the series! 

    We often see "community development" and "economic development" used as separate terms. So what do we mean by "community economic development" (CED)?

    The CED field is diverse and has many definitions and interpretations. CEDAM's executive director will explore several of them and through examples, attendees will learn about how locally-based CED organizations create healthy communities, empower residents, create economic opportunity, and more.
