"The HR manager of a large manufacturer in Newbury Park came to me with a dilemma. She could not find skilled manufacturing employees to replace those that were retiring. I turned to VCEDA for help. VCEDA put me in touch with several key educators in the county. I am now part of several groups of educators and business people working together to either develop new or customize existing programs to meet the needs of local manufacturers. VCEDA’s assistance helped me better serve my client’s needs."
"VCEDA provides valuable research and information that helps local businesses grow. It was instrumental, for example, in helping Agromin connect with other businesses that support incorporating sustainable practices in their day-to-day operations. In addition, as members of this powerful organization, all of us have an influence on how decisions are made in Ventura County. Businesses outside of VCEDA do not have that advantage."
"Nordman Cormany Hair & Compton values its membership in VCEDA and the role that VCEDA has played, on a countywide basis, in advocating for the best interests of the economic growth of all segments of the county's business community. VCEDA has continuously taken a leadership position in identifying and coalescing various elements of our community that have worked together for the betterment of the county."
