Friday, February 27 at Greenfield Community College

Perhaps by Friday, February 27, we will be relieved of some of these mountains of snow and eagerly venture forth to Greenfield Community College for our next breakfast. It’s a good one! The program speaker will be Rick Sullivan, the new President and CEO of the Economic Development Council (EDC) of Western Massachusetts. Rick is no stranger to the Pioneer Valley, having serving as Mayor of Westfield for thirteen years.
In 2007 Rick was appointed Commissioner of the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation and served in that capacity until 2011 when he was named MA Secretary of Energy and Environmental  Affairs. Last year, he became Governor Deval Patrick’s Chief of Staff for the remainder of the administration. Having just begun his new position on January 26, this will be a good opportunity for him  to hear from Franklin County businesses as well as give his views on economic activity in the Valley. In a recent conversation, we learned he is bullish about innovative ideas, job creation, and looks forward to the opportunities and challenges in Western Massachusetts. The previous eight years have given him a keen perspective on global issues, international commerce and strategic planning.
The breakfast begins at 7:30 and concludes at 9 a.m. Reserve by February 20, call (413) 773-5463. Chamber members $13.00 or non-members $16.00. Click here to view flyer.
