Board of Directors

The EDC board of directors is comprised of a number of professionals from the Bloomington-Normal business community, educational institutions, municipalities, organized labor and the non-profit sector. Board members meet on a bi-monthly basis to guide and govern the Economic Development Council.

Board members volunteer their time to serve the community by participating in the EDC and as such, no board member receives any material benefit from his/her position on the board.
