Home/Region 7/Desert Communities EAC

Welcome to the Desert Communities Employer Advisory Council (DCEAC) web site! The DCEAC is comprised of private and public sector employers working in association with the Employment Development Department (EDD) and the local business community. Our goal is to promote a better working relationship with EDD and the Workforce Development Center in our area, to network with one another, and to provide continuing educational information to our members and the community at large.

Our Board meets monthly and we hold solution centered business seminars three times a year, as well as free general membership meetings. Our area includes the greater Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Indio and Coachella), the High Desert communities and Blythe. We invite you to join us and become a member!

Membership fees: $40.00 annually.
