Gadsden County Development Council

The GCDC Board of Directors is comprised of the essential partners from industry, education and government to facilitate economic development. Public-private partnerships like ours are the basis for successful economic development organizations. These organizations re-invest public funds into a proven strategy for economic development guided by a balanced board of private industry, higher education and local governments. The secret sauce to success at the local level is creating, growing and leveraging statewide partners such as DEO, Enterprise Florida, CareerSource Florida, Opportunity Florida, the Apalachee Regional Planning Council, GrowFL, the Florida SBDC Network, FloridaMakes and many others.
