Primed for Primer to the CEcD Exam Process

I will be one of the presenters on a webinar, “Primer to the CEcD Exam Process:  What You Need to Know“, on April 8th at 2:00 p.m. CT.  The webinar provides those seeking to earn the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) certification with an overview of the CEcD exam process, from submitting the application to sitting for the written and oral examinations.  Tools and techniques to help prepare for the exam will also be included in the webinar.  Though it will be so much fun that everyone will love to participate, completing this webinar is now a requirement to sit for the CEcD exam.
