Harvey County EDC is overseen by a volunteer board that meets monthly, with an Executive Committee that meets monthly as well. Each one of our funding partners appoints community or business leaders to fulfill one to three year terms on the Harvey County EDC Board. The Board participates in annual work sessions as needed and helps define and support the scope of work for the EDC.
