COVID-19 EDO Resources

Announcements ,


Many of SEDC's members are individuals and companies that provide valuable products and services to other SEDC members.  In these difficult times, we have had some of these members offer complementary services, information, and products to our members, so we have started this page to highlight these offerings.  If you are an SEDC member providing products and services to SEDC members and would like to participate in this free service, please send your description (introduction about 50 words) and a link to more information to matthew@sedc.org.  We will add additional updates as we receive them.

They are in the form of a two-page infographic package and come in pdf, image and HTML files. Please see www.giswebtech.com for more information and to request your free report.
