Debbie Goode Awarded with FEDC Volunteer of the Year
Space Coast, FL (February 8, 2018) - Debbie Goode, partner at Carr, Riggs and Ingram CPAs and Advisors was honored with the 2017-2018 Volunteer of the Year Award by the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC). Crystal Stiles, FEDC Board Chair, presented Goode with the award last night at the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast’s (EDC) Board Meeting. This annual award honors individuals for their outstanding contributions to economic development in the state of Florida.
Goode has not only been a dedicated member and volunteer of the EDC since 2009, but she has also served as a catalyst for the Space Coast business community. In addition to being a founding member of the Space Coast Women in Defense, her vision was instrumental in starting FIT’s mentoring program WeVenture and its League of Extraordinary Women, which raised approximately $60,000 for the organization.
During her tenure as an EDC Officer, including two consecutive years as Board Chair, Goode provided the vision to develop a community marketing brochure that celebrates the economic drivers of Brevard County and promotes development resources on the Space Coast. The result, Discover Business, remains a key marketing tool for the EDC and the local business community.
Her recognition for the value of a strong base of volunteers led to over 40 new community leaders and business professionals offering their time to the EDC, advancing the mission of economic prosperity here in Brevard County.
“Debbie’s passion to support the business community, her leadership, guidance, and outspoken support is helping shape a new vision for the future of the Space Coast,” stated Lynda Weatherman, president and CEO of the EDC. “She continues to be a loyal ambassador for economic development and gives generously of her time and talent for the betterment of our community, while working closely with the EDC to ensure the Space Coast remains globally competitive.”
“Volunteers are a critical component in Florida’s economic development community each year,” said Beth Kirkland, executive director of the FEDC. “It is an honor to present Ms. Goode with this award, as she has gone above and beyond for the economic health of Brevard County.”
