MAPCED Measurement Tool Project
Completed September 2014
Local EDA/Organization: Minnesota Association of Professional County Economic Developers
EDA Center Faculty/Staff: Neil Linscheid, Extension Educator and Program Manager for Economic Impact Analysis at the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality
Project Description: This project assisted the Minnesota Association of Professional County Economic Developers (MAPCED) in developing a standard system and tools for collecting data about their work. This project was important to MAPCED and MAPCED members because it simplified the process of data collection, provided a method for gathering consistent data for use in advocating additional support of MAPCED members and MAPCED, and allowed MAPCED to more easily document the work of county economic development efforts in Minnesota.
