The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission received two awards at the annual International Economic Development Council conference held Sept. 18 to 21 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The awards were for two promotional efforts: A trading card initiative called Work Where You Play; and a video featuring testimonial interviews with several high technology innovators in the region.
“We recognize the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission for providing successful strategies to promote new standards in economic development in this period of global recovery,” said Dennis Coleman, the IEDC chair.
“Our awards honour organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in communities. “
