Investment Overview
On the most basic level, everyone benefits from a strong regional economy—workers, employers, even
visitors. Your investment in San Diego North Economic Development Council (SDNEDC) enables us to
continue our mission of attracting and retaining jobs and businesses in North San Diego County and
provides our region with a solid infrastructure that supports and sustains the high quality of life that is
synonymous with North County. Some specific benefits of SDNEDC membership include:
Public Policy Committee
SDNEDC plays a vital and unique role as the foremost local organization focused on the overall
health and vitality of our regional economy. Part of that responsibility requires that we, from

provides public and private sector leaders with an opportunity to stay informed about the major

inherent in the mission of the organization and address key topics related to regional prosperity
and engage members in organizational stewardship.
Special Events Committees
SDNEDC hosts multiple events throughout the year such as our Meet the Elected Officials
