The California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) is California’s premier economic development association. With more than 800 members, it is one of the largest economic development associations in the country, which is why they refer to our membership as California’s Economic Development Network. Since 1980, when it was created, CALED has led the way in teaching economic developers, local elected officials, and state representatives the value of economic development and how it is used to grow businesses, generate revenue to support community development programs, and retain and create quality jobs.
