Thank you for your interest and support of the Parkville EDC in 2021. We’re excited for you to join us as we continue the momentum we’ve established in 2020 and as we capitalize on the exciting progress in both the organization, Parkville proper and the surrounding area. The past year was and will continue to be full of educational and insightful programs highlighting the opportunities and challenges facing Parkville and the surrounding area and our partners. These programs will provide the knowledge necessary for our Board and Committees to carry out their mission of achieving economic development success for the Parkville area.

An investment in the Parkville Economic Development Council (PEDC) is an investment in the future of your business. By helping ensure the vitality of Parkville’s economy, you contribute to the long-term success of your business as well as others. The PEDC provides opportunities to make a difference in our community's future by uniting with other prominent business leaders to directly impact the area's future growth. Sixty five-percent of the PEDC's funding is provided by private memberships with the remainder from the City of Parkville. Every member has a crucial role to play in the success of the PEDC mission. Here are a few of the ways PEDC keeps investors involved.

    Inside Information - As a member, you will have first-hand knowledge of new companies coming into the area or existing companies expanding their business.
    Business Referrals - We help you grow your organization by providing direct business development opportunities when appropriate.
    Business Relocation/Expansion Incentives – When you’re ready to move or grow, the PEDC can help you find local or state incentives, select your new site and look for other cost-saving initiatives.
    Special Recruitment Initiatives - Members often provide specialized support for major recruitment initiatives, including headquarters attraction, technology, transportation and manufacturing.
    Prospecting and Events- EDC events give members an opportunity for personalized business-to-business marketing and networking.
    Research and Education - Access to key information on new business developments, economic trends,
    and changes in the marketplace. Let us know what information you need (economic data, demographics, incentives and more) and we will help you find it.
    Conversation and Influence - Access to the region's key decision makers from both private and public sectors. Have a voice and influence government decisions on taxation, permitting, transportation, laws and policies that affect the business climate.
