It’s been a busy month at the EDC. We have so many exciting updates to share with everyone.
First, we would like to introduce our new member, the Temecula Valley Unified School District, to the EDC. We started the month with our board meeting at MSJC’s Temecula Campus, where we listened to a presentation from Tim Dignan of the Temecula Valley Unified School District. We look forward to all the great things we can achieve for the students in our region.
We also want to thank our current member Consolidated Contracting for upgrading their membership to become Platinum Investors of the EDC. By becoming Platinum Investors, it allows the EDC to attend more conferences to attract exciting business opportunities, and it allows us to host many beneficial events in our region.
Next, we would like to recognize Southwest Healthcare for becoming a Sapphire-level sponsor of the EDC. We can't say thank you enough for your commitment, generosity, and support to our organization and region.
At the beginning of the month, our Executive Director, Connie Stopher CEcD, spent a week in Washington, D.C., for SelectUSA. Each year, this conference is held for developers to meet with international companies who want to enter the U.S. market. The trip was very successful. Within one week of the trip, we already had a site visit from one of the companies, and they were very impressed by our region. Other companies are also interested in visiting, so we are excited to host them in the upcoming months.
NAIOP Bus Tour
This month we also hosted NAIOP Bus Tour. The sold-out bus tour took industrial brokers on a site visit to each city in our region to tour available spaces. We have heard great feedback and are looking forward to partnering again with NAIOP in the future.
We are wrapping up the month in Las Vegas for ICSC. We hosted an event at Top Golf Las Vegas that allowed each city to invite its own guests to learn more about the region. The event was at full capacity, and we want to thank our City partners for attending and making it a great event!
June Board Meetingg
Our next board meeting is June 1st. We will be having a presentation discussing the Highway 79 project. Just a reminder, if you would like to bring a guest to the meeting, please have them sign up here so we can have a name tag ready for them when they arrive.

We have a lot going on in June as well. We will have our board of directors elections at our June Board Meeting. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Connie. At the end of June, we will have our board retreat and our Major’s Manufacturing Idea Exchange event with the City of Menifee.
