Chicago – The Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership placed 3rd today in the Mid-America Economic Development Council’s (MAEDC) Annual Economic Development Awards at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago.
The honor was awarded in the Community Promotion and Marketing Program Division for a series of videos titled Excel in Hendricks County, developed by the Hendricks County Business Leader.
The video series was broken down and customized for each of the county’s four chambers as well as the HCEDP to help explain to membership the partnership between the chambers and the HCEDP and what that partnership means to chamber membership and business through Hendricks County.
“It bodes well for our communities to be recognized as one of the Best of the Midwest for our marketing efforts,” said Cinda Kelley-Hutchings, Executive Director of the HCEDP. “Excel in Hendricks County was formulated to help inform our local entrepreneurs and young companies about the services available through our partners in every community.”
Kelley-Hutchings continued, “In addition, we understand the value-add of this video series speaking to small companies around the country. Hendricks County continues to be a leader on a number of local initiatives and I am proud of our local partners.”
