The Sussex Economic Development Action Committee (SEDAC) was founded after the 2007 Sussex County Today and Tomorrow Conference.  That conference focused on economic development and this committee is responding to that need. We are Sussex county citizens interested in taking action to strengthen economic development efforts and bring jobs and prosperity to our community.

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in Economic Development within Sussex County and all the things associated with ED. SEDAC has interest in growth, jobs, education, healthcare, quality of life and all Sussex County has to offer.  It is our goal to be a resource for any business or potential business looking to come to Sussex County. We are currently meeting the 4th Friday of each month from 9 – 11 am in person. If interested in attending a meeting please email Linda Price – linda@georgetowncoc.com. Yearly membership dues are $100/year
