Village of Tinley Park issued the following announcement on Nov. 13.
The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) recently named the Village’s Economic Development Division as an Accredited Economic Development Organization (AEDO).
The AEDO program is a comprehensive peer review process that measures economic development organizations against commonly held standards in the profession. The program consists of two phases: a documentation review and an onsite visit. Each phase is designed to evaluate information about the structure, organization, funding, program and staff of the candidate economic development organization.
“Earning the AEDO accreditation tells the community and prospects that the Village of Tinley Park attained a measure of excellence, assuring that their trust is well-placed and their business is in good hands,” IEDC officials said in a letter to the Village.
Maintenance of the AEDO status is required every three years and is accomplished through documentation submission and/or onsite visits by a team of the AEDO subcommittee.
