Championing Economic Development
The Oklahoma Professional Economic Development Council (OEDC) is the only statewide organization focused solely on promoting and championing the interests of economic development. We work hand-in-hand with elected officials, state policymakers and community leaders to keep Oklahoma competitive in recruitment, retention and industry growth.
OEDC takes a proactive approach in working with legislative leadership and policymakers whose actions impact our ability to recruit new business, help existing business expand and foster a healthy business climate. Our Legislative Committee adopts a yearly legislative agenda to advocate for initiatives that encourage investment and result in economic prosperity in Oklahoma.
OEDC stays current on legislation and takes an active role in promoting issues affecting business/industry and economic development. Through a partnership with the State Chamber of Oklahoma, OEDC is able to provide advocacy training, legislative alerts and other resources to promote the OEDC Legislative Agenda at the state Capitol.
