The CCED offers a variety of training opportunities throughout the year. The most notable program that our staff provides is the Community Development Institute (CDI). CDI is the premiere community and economic development training program for the mid-South and has been shaping community leaders for over 31 years. The CCED also provides statewide, regional, community-specific, and organizational training programs. Each training initiative is developed in coordination with our participants so we can address the specific needs of their community.
