Media Release, Curry County Chamber of Commerce:
Last week the New Mexico Economic Development Department announced that Clovis Economic Development (CED) was certified as an Economic Development Organization. Certified EDO’s receive a $40,000 cash grant annually upon recertification, which can be renewed for up to 10 years.
The announcement was made in Albuquerque at the 2023 Governor’s Conference on Economic Development, an annual event that brings professionals together to learn skills and share information on creating jobs and growing New Mexico’s economy. CED was awarded with the EDO certification because they excelled in a rigorous application process that included a site visit and round table interview of community partners by the State Economic Development Department.
“We are excited to receive this recognition along with the grant money. A special thank you to our CED Board led by Board President Lee Malloy, and Economic Development Director Susie Russell who spent many hours on the certification. The combined efforts of our board and staff continue to prove what a great economic development team we have representing Clovis and Curry County.” – CED Executive Director Tina Dziuk
