    Certified Economic Developers (CEcD)

    To piggy back on some previous threads I've posted about trying to get into Economic Development, or at least appear as if I know about Economic Development, I was wondering if anyone had this certification?

    I was contemplating a second masters degree that was more geared toward economic development, but this may be a better route. If this certification worth it? How did you piece the classes together when they look like they are offered all over the country?

    Any chance that one of the CEcD folks will chime in? I'm starting the certification coursework at the end of the month, on my employer's dime, and it's such a long and costly process I feel kind of bad about it.

    Reading up on Amazon's RFP for a second North American headquarters. It's been interesting reading articles and blogs that typically focus on planning, economic development, or business now tackle the confluence of the three disciplines.
