The Victoria Partnership

One of VEDC’s greatest resources is the Victoria Partnership. To answer the community’s desire for inclusion in the economic development process, VEDC began holding regularly scheduled meetings for both community leaders and citizens at large. The meetings are open to anyone with a role or interest in the economic and/or community development process.

These informal weekly meetings are held each Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. and present an opportunity for participants to share ideas regarding economic development relevant topics ranging from community assets, the economic development process, education or just general announcements.
