Greater Burlington Partnership receives award from IEDC

Sep 21, 2017

WASHINGTON — Grow Greater Burlington, the economic development division of the Greater Burlington Partnership, won a Bronze Excellence in Economic Development Award for its “Outboxing Our Weight Class” Magazine Ad, a project in the category of Paid Ad Campaign from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). The honor was presented at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 19, during the IEDC Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada.

“On behalf of the IEDC board of directors and Excellence in Economic Development Awards Advisory Committee, congratulations to Grow Greater Burlington,” 2017 IEDC Board Chair Michael Langley said. “Not only did they work to provide a necessary service to their community, but their participation in the awards program sheds light on their stellar projects which other communities can now use as a benchmark.”

The Greater Burlington Partnership has been selected as the number one Micropolitan on the Mississippi for the 2nd year in a row. The award is called the “Bid Muddy Cup” awarded by Site Selection Magazine.

“The awards process is a thorough, non-biased and multilayered process. These are extraordinary accomplishments for all winners, and an overall great effort by all participants. We look forward to next year’s awards competition,” Langley said.

The Greater Burlington Partnership exists to ensure that Greater Burlington is a growing regional center of commerce, industry, education, health care, entertainment and culture, providing a great place to live and work.
