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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (309) 452-8437.
