The Community Development Council (CDC) is a distinguished and proud professional association for community and economic development practitioners in the United States. This rich history has been developed through strong leadership and commitment from our volunteer leaders and the framework of the Community Development Institutes (CDI) across the country. To ensure we continue this tradition of quality leadership we seek to identify potential Board Members through our Community Development Council (CDC) Board Interest Form.
