In January of 1988, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians Tribal Council chartered Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority (CIEDA). The primary goal of CIEDA is to be the economic development and management arm of the tribe. CIEDA has a five-member board that acts on behalf of the tribe in regard to its existing business dealings and future economic development endeavors. The CIEDA Board of Directors and President are accountable for the administration and operation of all Tribal lease properties and its subsidiary enterprises. The primary obligation of CIEDA is to manage and operate the subject property in a manner, which best promotes the interests of the Tribe.
