Join the EDL Board!
Lethbridge - Economic Development Lethbridge is an arm’s length organization, supported by the City of Lethbridge, governed by a 25-member volunteer Board of Directors and managed by a team of professionals dedicated to promoting economic prosperity in Lethbridge.
EDL Board Members are drawn from a diverse cross-section of the community with the intention of best accomplishing the mandate and objectives of the organization.
In 2016, Board members provided guidance and leadership to many important initiatives including the Destination Management Plan, Intelligent Community Strategy and the recent announcement of Cavendish Farms Choosing Lethbridge for their facility expansion.
Board members often contribute to the local entrepreneur community through mentorship and network opportunities connected to the tecconnect centre for entrepreneurship and innovation. On occasion, Board members may also attend conferences and participate in global volunteer missions related to their industry experience and expertise. Board members serve a two-year term with the option to extend their service to a second term as re-appointed by the Board.
