Pocono Business Journal and Chuck Leonard of Pocono Mountains Economic Development Corp. are partnering with Borders (Shoppes at Stroud) to continue the “Business and Books” series. May’s topic, “Economic Development Trends in NEPA,” will be presented on Thursday, May 21 at 5:30 p.m. by Chuck Leonard, who will discuss the following topics of interest:
• Growth industries in the Poconos
• Attracting employers
• Update on current projects in Monroe County
Presented throughout 2009 by members of our local business community who are also PBJ columnists, future sessions will cover topics such as executive leadership, the arts, county government, healthcare, and more.
Discussions will last no more than half an hour, followed by a question and answer period. They are open to the public and do not require prior registration. This event will be held in Border’s café.
In the spirit of contributing to a positive environment for growth and economic development in the region, PBJ is using “Business and Books” as a venue to inform and educate members of our business community.
