‘Tis the time of year for work planning, and at CED it’s something we look forward to with relish. We use a simple, collaborative, action-oriented process to discuss our key messages, services, internally funded projects, and personal development goals.
Nine months ago we were drinking coffee while discussing about how our state economy is changing and lamenting that no one had spent time exploring emerging industries with growth potential.

As we reflect back on the impact made by Lemonade Day Alaska - more than 4,000 participants in 2017, more than $1 million made by Lemonade Day stands donated to local nonprofits since program inception - it's bittersweet to share that after seven fun-filled years, CED is handing Lemonade Day Alaska over to our sister organization, the Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC).
