small_tmedEconomic Development Alliance

The Texas Midwest Economic Development Alliance was established in 1999 for TMCN member cities actively engaged in economic development.

As an activity of the Texas Midwest Community Network, the Alliance formed in 1999 to enhance regional economic development programs by strengthening its competitive advantage through education and networking opportunities with fellow economic development professionals and business and industry leaders.    The Alliance sponsors a number of networking events throughout the year to increase communication among leaders in the regions as well as increasing the region’s visibility – both inside and outside the region – for business and tourism development.
