EDC gets website award



The Blount County Economic Development Council (EDC) received an award of merit for their new website at the annual Southern Economic Development Council (SEDC) Conference, held the last week of July in Savannah, Ga.

“We are very excited to have been chosen for this award,” said Don Mitchell, executive director of the EDC. “We love our website and have been receiving very positive feedback from site consultants, regional partners, and community members alike. As many times, the Internet is the first place a potential client will go for information, having an attractive, informative website was essential to the EDC’s mission. Our new site beautifully showcases the advantages that Blount County has to offer, and we are very honored to have been recognized by the SEDC.”

Websites were judged on appearance, clarity of message, message impact, execution, and uniqueness of concept. The Blount County EDC website was developed by Decatur-based Red Sage Communications, and can be accessed at www.blountedc.com.
