Value Proposition

Following our separation from the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce in June 2012, the Lakeland Economic Development Council met with its Board, Members, High Skill Investors and Community Partners to chart a path for the future of our organization. The LEDC, along with its High Skill investors, partnered with design firm IDEO, in early 2013 to bring a human-centered perspective to the ongoing thinking about the LEDC and Lakeland’s future. Our work in these specific areas, along with the economic impact of our members, make up the LEDC’s value proposition, not only for our members, but our community.
