Johnson named OEDA Membership Chairperson

Adams County’s own Holly Johnson was recently named as Chairperson of the Ohio Economic Development Association’s Membership Committee.

Professional reputation and personality were key factors in appointment –

Future membership rolls at the Ohio Economic Development Association (OEDA) might well exceed all expectations following the election of Holly Johnson as Chairperson of the organization’s Membership Committee.
Johnson, who serves as Director of Adams County’s Economic Development Office, won praise from OEDA’s Executive Director, Jennifer Price, who said her personality set her apart from other candidates for the office.
“Holly is well-respected in the economic development community and her credibility is an important asset in our membership efforts,” Price said. “At the same time, her genuine and warm personality makes her very approachable which is so important as the head of our membership recruitment efforts.”
Prior to being elected to Membership Chairperson, Johnson served for two years on the OEDA board and was actively involved in representing Southern Ohio in the state’s leading economic development association.
Because OEDA is a voluntary professional association for economic and community developers, its strength comes from the quality and quantity of its members. In her new position Johnson will play a critical role in fostering membership growth by attracting new members and retaining existing members.
“As we are a membership-driven association, we are grateful to have someone with Holly’s economic and community development experience so significantly involved in OEDA,” said Price.
Johnson says she will be focused on future growth opportunities that exist for the organization.
“OEDA has seen steady membership growth over the past few years and is definitely on an upward trajectory,” she says. “I believe this speaks to the fact that government and community leaders as well as citizens see the value of economic development and recognize its importance in keeping our communities strong.”
