The Shawnee Economic Development Council (SEDC) has been helping others succeed since it was established in 1994. The SEDC is a partnership effort between the City of Shawnee, Shawnee Chamber of Commerce and the Shawnee business community that is in existence to assist Shawnee's business development and growth of the current and future business climate. This is done through efforts that would bring new business to Shawnee, such as new corporations, retail and restaurant establishments as well as new manufacturing and light industrial companies. The SEDC also helps those businesses already in Shawnee continue to succeed by offering unique business learning opportunities, expansion efforts, networking and sharing of business knowledge. The SEDC is proud to be a member of this community that works to help others get ahead for a better future for Shawnee.
