Benefits of being a member of CEDOS include:
– the opportunity to hear from speakers from key Government
Departments and other national organisations and agencies
on key issues and to share knowledge and experience and hear
what is going on in other areas in both roundtable discussions
and through informal networking.
Influence Government – as well as in discussions at CEDOS meetings, members have regular opportunities to inform and participate in CEDOS responses to national consultations and evidence to Parliamentary Select Committees and All-Party Groups.
Access to research – the opportunity to be part of and benefit from practitioner-based research that provides both a basis for influencing policy nationally and locally and to identify developments in economic initiatives across the country.
Information and contacts – CEDOS updates and access to contacts in local authority economic development provide the opportunity to keep up to date, share knowledge and exchange best practice.
Access to Networks - CEDOS has strong links with the Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning and Transport, the Institute of Economic Development and other relevant networks.
