Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) knows that economic development professionals have a unique skill set that can help to create vibrant and well balanced communities.
That is why EDA has collaborated with one of Canada's leading volunteer-driven development organizations- the Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO).
Since 1967, CESO has completed over 46,000 assignments across Canada and in over 120 countries around the world. By supporting sustainable local development, CESO focuses on helping individuals and organizations to build strong, viable businesses and independent communities that will in turn create opportunities and a better quality of life for generations to come.

“By collaborating with CESO, EDA is able to profile volunteer opportunities for our members that can enhance their personal and professional development, while giving back to the global community,” says Leann Hackman-Carty, EDA’s Executive Director.
“In exchange for their time, members become involved with short-term, high impact economic development assignments that produce immediate, sustainable results to communities within Canada and in many other countries around the world. It is an exciting program, in need of professionals with community economic development expertise, which EDA members can offer.”
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Advisor for CESO, you can contact their Recruitment Manager Jennifer Filson directly at email@example.com or 1-800-268-9052 ext. 4100.
In addition, as community economic development opportunities are identified by CESO staff, EDA will make these available to our members.
