"Team Volusia EDC has provided me access to a forum that I believe to be critical to the economic growth of Volusia County. The access has resulted in opportunities for me to contribute to that growth."
"Through the scheduled Executive Committee meetings, it has been helpful to see the types of projects and initiatives that other Volusia communities have implemented. This information is used to advance economic development strategic initiatives within New Smyrna Beach."
"The birth of Team Volusia EDC (TVEDC) was exactly what Volusia County needed to be successful as a whole. The County has always had the resources to succeed, but the players rarely worked together. TVEDC demonstrated that economic development is truly a team sport which, in turn, taught the players to seek success on a unified basis, verses trying to do everything independently in a competitive and unsuccessful way."
"Team Volusia EDC does a fantastic job of representing Volusia County and generating economic opportunities that benefit businesses across the county."
"This is a group to be a part of. It is important to be at the table to hear more about what is going on in our community and how to engage the business community."
