Jun 2015

Dorie Bacon, Executive Director of Screven County Development Authority, recently earned the designation of Certified Economic Developer (CEcD), a national recognition that denotes a mastery of principal skills in economic development, professional attainment and a commitment to personal and professional growth. 

The CEcD exam was administered by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) on June 6 and 7 in Madison at the Monona Terrace Convention Center. With 10 years of economic development experience, Dorie Bacon has worked in two communities and performed job responsibilities including traditional economic development, business retention and expansion, small business development, tourism, and historic preservation.

The CEcD designation recognizes qualified and dedicated practitioners in the economic development field and sets the standard of excellence within the profession.  Candidates must pass a rigorous and comprehensive three-part, two-day examination, which tests a practitioner’s knowledge, proficiency and judgment in the key areas of economic development, including business retention and expansion, marketing, finance, workforce development, community development, real estate, strategic planning, tech-led economic development, and management.

As highly competent economic development practitioners, Certified Economic Developers work with public officials, business leaders and community members to create leadership to build upon and maximize the economic development sector.  Excellence in the economic development profession improves the well being, quality of life and opportunities for individuals, businesses and communities.  There are currently over 1,100 active CEcDs in the United States.
