Yost Named to Board of NCEDA


The North Carolina Economic Developments Association (NCEDA), the state’s lead advocate on economic development legislation, has named N.C. Southeast President Steve Yost to its 18-member board of directors. His three-year term began in July.

“Steve brings broad experience and exceptional insight to NCEDA's Board of Directors,” says Linda Weiner, president of NCEDA. “His roles at both the state and regional levels, in addition to his perspective relative to our state's economic development partnerships, make him a valuable addition.” Mr. Yost was formally elected to the board in June at NCEDA’s annual meeting at Wrightsville Beach. “I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with him on behalf of North Carolina's economic development efforts,” says Ms. Weiner, who is vice president for engagement and strategic innovation at the North Carolina Community College System in Raleigh.

Founded in 1967, NCEDA represents the interests of the state’s economic development community. Its membership includes local, state and regional economic developers, allied professionals such as bankers and utility industry personnel, and university and community college educators. Its programs include legislative outreach, professional development offerings and information services. The 600-member association is headquartered in Raleigh.
