CEDCO’S Mission: Tribal Self-Sufficiency
With Congressional approval of the Coquille Tribe’s Restoration Act in 1989, the Coquille Indian Tribe became responsible for fostering tribal self-sufficiency and fostering the long-term economic well-being of its members. In 1992, the Coquille Tribal Council created the Coquille Economic Development Council (CEDCO).
Formed as a Tribally Chartered Corporation, CEDCO is managed by a seven-member Board of Directors appointed by the Tribal Council. The structure provides for an independently operated corporation whose strategic decisions blend Tribal policies and goals with sound business practices.
With almost three decades of experience, CEDCO provides the expertise to identify and grow successful businesses and investments that contribute to Tribal self-sufficiency by building sustainable businesses that, in turn, create diversified sources of income and varied employment opportunities for the Tribe.
CEDCO Leadership Team
CEDCO is governed by a Board of Directors and a highly competent and experienced corporate staff. The members of CEDCO’s leadership team have a wealth and diversity of business experience.
