Worcester County Economic Development Week

We may be biased, but October 25 through October 29 is a great week for Worcester County—it’s Economic Development Week! The Worcester County Department of Economic Development (WCED) in partnership with the Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA) is celebrating the week-long event.

The purpose of Economic Development Week is to acknowledge WCED as a nonprofit organization that is an impactful and active member of MEDA.WCED works diligently to attract new residents and businesses, as well as provide jobs and strengthen our local economy. In turn, this directly contributes to the state of Maryland’s economic success overall.

The event dedicates a week to showcasing how economic development in the county and the state is improving the quality of life for Maryland residents.

To celebrate, Worcester County is hosting social media campaigns, a networking mixer event for organization leaders, and will meet with local businesses to discuss needs. These activities are put together to highlight different topics throughout the week.
