Director of Special Projects, Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast

A Community of Choice Conversation

The collaboration of the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast and the Space Coast Office of Tourism is proud to launch Mission Space Coast, a community branding initiative. A unified community brand will distinguish Florida’s Space Coast as a premier place to live, work, and play.

We cordially invite you to join us for Step 1 of Mission Space Coast which is a Community of Choice Conversation.

What is a Community of Choice Conversation? This is an approximate one-hour interactive session between organizations, both private and public, as we seek to identify the essence of the Florida’s Space Coast resulting in the first ever unified community brand.  To insure the success of the Community of Choice Conversation:

  1. Come to the meeting with positive intent and willingness to collaborate;
  2. Be ready to share what you believe defines the Space Coast; and
  3. Prior to attending the meeting, please complete THIS FORM online.

The EDC will host multiple Community of Choice Conversations throughout the county which will engage civic organizations to garner feedback from the community about what they believe defines the Space Coast.

Community of Choice Conversations will gain feedback from participants in four primary areas: 1)  Legacy 2) Landscape 3) Lifestyle and 4) Livelihood of the Space Coast. This feedback will be extrapolated and provided to outside consultants to inform Step 2 of Mission Space Coast, the focus groups.

Angela Neal serves as the Director of Special Projects for the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast. In this position, she manages Mission Space Coast, the Space Coast community branding initiative and the Certified Production Technician Program (CPT).

Skilled in project and program management as well as talent attraction and retention, Angela has worked with private, government, and non- governmental organizations (NGOs) across the U.S. and internationally. Her work with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce saw her manage 22 geographically dispersed working groups comprised of businesses, NGOs, and government entities aimed to tackle military community un- and under-employment through legislative and hiring efforts, as well as professional development for job seekers and employers.

She firmly believes in giving back to the community through volunteerism. Angela is the founding member of the Hiring Our Heroes Space Coast Military Spouse Professional Network (MSPN) as well as member of Rockledge Rotary, Space Coast Project Management Institute, and LEAD Brevard Alumni Engagement Committee.

Angela has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Maryland Global Campus and Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake and holds the project management professional (PMP) certification. Angela, her husband, and children happily welcomed the Space Coast as their home for a second time following military orders in Okinawa, Japan.
