“I am honored the nominating committee of past NCEDA presidents selected me to represent my profession on the board,” said Hawkins. “I look forward to serving and giving back to an association that has benefited me and my organization in so many ways since I joined MCEDP in 2021.”

“NCEDA members play a vital role in ensuring a strong and healthy state economy. Supporting the association’s efforts to increase the knowledge of members across the state and advocate for legislation that supports local economic developers is critical to our future success. I am excited to take on this leadership role and am grateful for the confidence instilled in me by my peers,” said Hawkins.
