The Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) is an Austin-based, statewide, non-profit professional association dedicated to the development of economic and employment opportunities in Texas. The TEDC is a 501(c)(6) membership organization; and therefore, any dues, registration fees, or sponsorships paid to the organization are not tax deductible.

The TEDC is a one-stop shop for ideas, information, and influence.  We are the largest state association of economic development professionals, volunteers, and elected officials.  Our diverse members share a common goal -- bringing new investment and jobs to Texas.

We provide information, educational and legislative services to more than 850 members representing more than 500 public and private economic development organizations, including more than 350 cities.  Our objective is to support the economic growth of Texas and develop strategies that promote a positive business climate in our state.
