TULSA (JR) – The Tulsa Regional Chamber has been named among top economic development organizations by the International Economic Development Council.

The IEDC, which noted efforts of the Tulsa chamber that led to creation of at least 4,125 jobs last year and $421 million of capital investment in northeastern Oklahoma, named the chamber a Silver Award recipient in its Economic Development Organization of the Year category.

The IEDC represents 5,000 members and is the largest association for professional economic developers in the world. According to a release, its Economic Development Awards are presented in recognition of outstanding economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and the year’s most influential leaders. They’re also presented to organizations that demonstrate long-term strategic planning, organizational development and significant community impact and innovation.

“Collaboration has always moved our region forward, and the success of Tulsa’s Future is possible thanks to our 200 private investors, and numerous regional and tribal partners,” Tulsa Chamber President and CEO Mike Neal said. “We are delighted to receive this award and greatly appreciate IEDC’s ongoing support of economic development professionals across the globe.”

The Tulsa Regional Chamber represents 2,000 member organizations and more than 170,000 workers. It develops and delivers a wide variety of programs and services designed to benefit Tulsa-area businesses.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by our economic development professional peers as a best-in-class organization,” said Arthur Jackson, senior vice president of economic development for the Tulsa Chamber. “We’ve seen a significant increase in economic development activity during the last several years and are excited for what lies ahead for the Tulsa region. We remain deeply committed to bringing transformational investment to northeast Oklahoma.”
