Kathleen Cady Schilling, Executive Director of the Ozaukee Economic Development Council, attended the January 30th TM Rotary meeting to share the great work of the OEDC.  
Established in 1989, the OEDC serves as a one stop shop for businesses looking to locate or expand in Ozaukee County.  The number one goal of the organization is to make the process easy and simple.  
The OEDC offers programs and services that meet targeted economic needs of the Ozaukee Community.  They serve as an information clearinghouse providing local information on financial options through local government or state programs.  They help to identify business and community needs.  Among the programs developed by the OEDC to meet business and community needs are: Workforce programs' educational programs; business planning programs; outreach programs and leadership programs.  
Utilizing an economic impact program designed by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce, OEDC has actively been involved with 51 projects since 2007 that have created or retained jobs creating an impact of over $320,000,000.
