Program Day: Economic Development
Wednesday, February 13, 10:30 a.m. BK’s Tavern Banquet Hall,
320 Airport Road, Fall River
Across the country, more and more cities, counties, and towns in close proximity are working in unison to address far-reaching economic challenges. The regionalism concept encourages municipalities to look beyond their boundaries and recognize that working together towards the betterment of an entire area will ultimately prove beneficial to each locality within it. This notion is not unlike the principals of our global economy-with impacts on one nation likely having resulting impacts on others. How is the regionalism idea evolving here on the SouthCoast? Why is regionalism an important success factor for economic development here on the SouthCoast? What are the challenges? What opportunities are on the horizon? In addition to the following panel of local community leaders, participants will hear directly from Andrew Kennedy, President and CEO of the Center for Economic Growth out of Albany about best practices from New York’s Capital region.
Moderator: Mike O’Sullivan, President of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce
Panelists: Doug Glassman, Owner of SERVPRO; Keith Hovan, President and CEO of Southcoast Health; Rick Kidder, President of the SouthCoast Chamber of Commerce; and Jennifer Menard, Interim Vice President of External Affairs at Bristol Community College
