LSCP reaccredited by the IEDC

MARQUETTE — The Lake Superior Community Partnership has again been recognized as one of 60 economic development organizations accredited by International Economic Development Council as an Accredited Economic Development Organization. Originally accredited in 2011, this is the second time the organization has been reaccredited by IEDC following many successful years of activity as an AEDO member, a press release states.

The AEDO program is a peer review process that measures economic development organizations against commonly held standards in the profession. The program consists of two phases: a documentation review and an onsite visit. Each phase is designed to evaluate information about the structure, organization, funding, program and staff of the candidate organization.

“We are pleased to announce that the LSCP has received our reaccreditation from the IEDC,” Brett French, LSCP board chairman, said in the release. “This third party review gives us credibility with our key stakeholders measuring us against the best in our business.”
