Friday, March 27 @ Terrazza Ristorante at the Country Club of Greenfield

In February we heard a broad perspective about economic activity in the Pioneer Valley from Rick Sullivan of the EDC, and now on Friday, March 27 we will hear something from one who has all the facts and figures related to our own economy in Franklin County. This will be at Terrazza Ristorante at the Country Club of Greenfield (244 Country Club Road), beginning at 7:30 a.m. and concluding at 9:00.
Jessica Atwood is the Senior Economic Development Planner for Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) and she will present information about two programs that may be of particular interest to Chamber members.  There will be a review of the FRCOG's Economic Development Planning Program which will highlight important economic data about the region and will also include information about current economic development planning activities. This is important because the latest version of the Franklin County Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS) is nearly complete and will be ready for review in April. 

There will also be information about the resources available from the Western Region Homeland Security Advisory Council to help communities and businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies, presented by Mark Maloni, Public Health Planner at FRCOG.

Reserve by March 20 by calling (413) 773-5463. Chamber members $13.00 (prepaid or pay-at-door), $14.00 (billed) or non-members $16.00. Click here to view the flyer.
