Member Benefits

Members of ACEDC receive direct benefits from supporting the organization. Members also receive indirect benefits through ACEDC’s efforts to support Addison County companies and municipalities and raise the standard of living of its citizens.

Amy Oxford, owner of The Oxford Company, shares how she benefited from ACEDC membership:

"The increase in my business revenue is due in part to the assistance I've gotten from your organization starting with the Marketing Bootcamp workshop and then with our ongoing Bootcamp monthly group. These events have been a huge help to me. I have learned a lot, gained confidence, and discovered new resources and contacts that helped me to grow my business."
