We are your team to help you succeed in Caroline County!

The CEDC is governed by a team of volunteer board members from a variety of industries and business disciplines.  These leaders help shape the strategic direction for economic development within Caroline County.

All CEDC Board meetings are open to the public.  Meetings are held at 8:00 a.m. on the third Wednesday of every month at the CEDC offices at 317 Carter Ave., Suite 107 in Denton.  Meetings are held in Open Session unless otherwise indicated on the agenda.  All or part of CEDC board meetings may be conducted in closed session by the authority of the state open meetings law by vote of the board members.  The order of agenda items may change as time dictates and allows.
