Organizational Structure

While the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership (AEDP) is funded by the City of Alexandria, we are a public-private partnership organized as a 501(c)(6) to maximize flexibility as a business advocacy organization. Led by an independent board of directors, we work closely with city management and city elected officials to achieve our mission.


The mission of the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership (AEDP) is to promote the City of Alexandria as a premier location for businesses by capitalizing on its assets including multiple Metro stations, historical character, and riverfront location in order to enhance the city’s tax revenue and increase employment opportunities.


The Alexandria Economic Development Partnership (AEDP) envisions that Alexandria should be a vibrant, creative, and diverse city where large and small businesses can locate and grow while enhancing the community’s quality of life.
