The year 2016, for The 7 Rivers Alliance, can best be summed up by our Board of Directors President, Michael Richards.
“The past year has been one of the best for the 7 Rivers Alliance. Through our programming, we reached more people than ever before,875 to be exact, and have brought topics to you that have ranged from sustaining local grocery stores to looking at best practices for regional workforce housing. This year was also our first ever Rising Stars Under 40 awards, which we presented to 19 great leaders in the Tri-State area. We also announced significant funding for a 10-year regional workforce study, the first of its kind in our region. This study will be looking at our workforce through a new lens, while also focusing on workforce housing, transportation, and child care.” Here’s to an even more successful 2017!
