The EDC brings together all agencies charged with economic development and job creation in the county, as well as a full spectrum of services – from business attraction, to promotion and marketing of the area's existing businesses, to increasing tourism dollars and creating a workforce ready to fill jobs.

The EDC Board consists of the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce, the Industrial Development Agency, the Partnership for Economic Development, the Visitors Association, the Workforce Development Board and the Sullivan County Planning Division. At-large Board Members have been selected from the Health Care, Tourism and Agricultural business sectors, representing the County's largest industries.

Feedback from the public during the countywide Economic Development Charrette at the end of 2009 stressed the need for a coordinating entity focused on economic development. The EDC formalizes the relationship between these agencies and is serving as the clearinghouse for implementing many of the recommendations that emerged from the Charrette.

Among the initiatives of the EDC are this new “virtual portal” for web-access to member organizations, data and resources available, plus unifying the County’s branding and image campaigns under the banner of “Mountains of Opportunities.”
