Economic Development Council of the Bloomington-Normal Area, One Voice

The Economic Development Council of the Bloomington-Normal Area offers a college student the opportunity to participate in its One Voice Washington, D.C. trip. One Voice, under the leadership of the EDC, is a pro-community campaign that has brought together leaders from the City of Bloomington, the Town of Normal, McLean County, labor, local educational institutions and local private businesses. These groups form the One Voice task force. The goal of the campaign is to make McLean County a stronger economic force and a better place to live.

 Each year, the One Voice task force chooses local projects to support in their quests for federal funding. In the spring, the task force travels to Washington, D.C. to meet with our congressional delegation and show them our community stands united in support of the projects. The total cost of the trip is $1495. Attached is additional information as well as the application.

This opportunity is open to students of any major. For more information, please contact Cathy Milligan at or (309) 452-8437.
