As a membership benefit, CALED has again partnered with Business Facilities to publish our 2020 member directory, “Who’s Who in Economic Development.” The directory features CALED members and highlights their communities. CALED designed this tool to help our members get more attention outside of California. It is an important part of our effort to support and promote our members, as well as raise awareness about the positive side of doing business in California.

This directory will be included in Business Facilities’ 2020 Annual Rankings Report and distributed to their circulation list of more than 60,000 corporate executives with active relocation, expansion, or consolidation plans. Members may also advertise their organization or community in the member directory.  The 2020 CALED Member Directory is a stand-alone guide inserted into the September/October 2020 issue of Business Facilities.

In order to be included as a listed member in the 2020 Member Directory, your dues must be current.

Not a member in CALED? You may join/register as a new member in CALED to be listed in the 2021 Member Directory.

We would like to thank all of our members that placed an advertisement in the 2020 CALED Member Directory, which was printed in September 2020. Please note that many changes occur after the member directory is printed, so please update your member information so that we can be as accurate as possible.

To keep your membership and listing current, please log in to our membership database and check your contact/listing information. (Forgot your password? Email laura@caled.org to reset.) The following information is listed in the directory.

  • First and Last Name
  • Job Title

If your contact information needs to be updated or you simply want to check the status of your membership, please email Laura Cole-Rowe at laura@caled.org or call (916) 448-8252, ext. 13.
