    Fraise Earns Economic Development Designation
    Lee County EDG would like to congratulate Dennis Fraise on expanding his economic development knowledge to further Southeast Iowa.

    Lee County EDG Cheif Operating Officer Dennis Fraise has earned the designation of Certified Economic Developer (CEcD), a national recognition that denotes a mastery of skills in economic development, professional attainment and a commitment to personal and professional growth.

    The CEcD designation recognizes qualified and dedicated practitioners in the economic development field and sets the standard of excellence within the profession.

    Candidates must pass a rigorous and comprehensive examination, which has three parts and spans two days. The exam tests a practitioner's knowledge, proficiency and judgment in the following key areas of economic development:
    • business retention and expansion
    • finance & credit analysis
    • marketing and attraction
    • strategic planning
    • entrepreneurial & small business development
    • managing economic development organizations
    • neighborhood development strategies
    • real estate development & reuse
    • technology-led economic development
    • workforce development strategies
    As highly competent economic development professionals, Certified Economic Developers work with public officials, business leaders and community members to create leadership to build upon and maximize the economic development sector.  Excellence in the economic development profession improves the well being, quality of life and opportunities for individuals, businesses and communities. There are currently only 1,100 active CEcDs in the United States.
