Welcome to Oneida County EDC

In 1989, the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation was created as a partnership between business and industry. We are responsible for new business growth and assisting our existing businesses with the expansion already located in Oneida County.

The mission of the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation is:
"To promote and stimulate the orderly growth of stable businesses which will provide year-round employment throughout Oneida County while maintaining a high quality of life with a livable wage."

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Corporation, we act as an economic development coordinator for all of Oneida County. Oneida County Economic Development Corporation assists individuals investigating the feasibility of going into business, works with existing business to expand and retain economic viability and works to attract new business in an effort to expand our economic base and provide employment alternatives to the citizens of Oneida County. We are also a conduit between business and government on a local, regional, state, and federal level.

“The Future of Economics in the Northwoods”
The Oneida County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC) will hold its Annual Meeting & Luncheon on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. at Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander.

This year’s topic will be, “The Future of Economics in the Northwoods.” Our main speaker is Mandela Barnes, Wisconsin’s 45th Lieutenant Governor.  He states, “From our smallest communities to the largest cities, I want to see Wisconsin sharing ideas and working to promote economic growth. The mission of the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation aligns with my office’s goals of economic viability by paying all Wisconisnites a family-supporting wage and supporting the growth and development of businesses—all while sustaining and protecting the Earth that makes our state, specifically the Northwoods, so unique and beautiful.”

There will also be a presentation by a student of the Fab Lab Three Lakes and update from Steve Yahr, Director.

The general public is welcome to attend. Cost for the luncheon is $25 per person. Reservations are required in advance by contacting the OCEDC office at 715-369-9110, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. or by submitting this form, along with your payment prior to April 19, 2019.
