Considering the needs of our members coupled with our strengths and capabilities as a partnership, CAEP is best positioned to empower Central Alberta communities by:
Influential Relationships: We are catalysts for collaborative, community-minded relationships focused on advancing sustainable, regional development.
Knowledge-sharing and Resources: We create, share, and foster knowledge-sharing and the use of economic development tools to ensure communities are enabled and supported to advance innovative practices and prosperity.
Capacity Building: We create learning and training opportunities, lead research, and identify regional trends that enable communities – including their economic development professionals – to identify, pursue, and achieve economic development opportunities.
Reflecting Regional Interests: We work to understand and reflect the collective and unique interests of our region and communities through sharing, promoting, and actively representing our opportunities, successes, and desired outcomes.
