Speaker: Pete Bardunias, President/CEO of the Southern Saratoga Chamber of Commerce
The Capital Region is blessed with large-scale economic growth and opportunity. Think Global Foundries, General Electric, Momentive and others. Often overlooked are the multitude and magnitude of local community based initiatives that also build and sustain our economic development.
Join Peter Bardunias, President/CEO of The Chamber of Southern Saratoga County, as he shares a sampling of these local community development projects and demonstrates the link between these projects and local economic development. He will show how a $30,000 investment in local community projects has positively impacted more than 100,000 people in 16 communities and has contributed to the region annually more than $500 million.
Learn about these projects and discover how you can become involved and contribute to growth in your local community and the greater Capital Region.
As “the face and voice of the Chamber,” Peter “Pete” Bardunias utilizes his 25 years of business experience and vast contact network to advocate vigorously for the business community of southern Saratoga County and beyond. A former business owner, Pete has been on numerous chamber and nonprofit boards and makes good use of his science background to be an effective business leader in New York’s Tech Valley. The results speak for themselves. The Business Council of New York State honored The Chamber of Southern Saratoga County with its designation as “2014 Chamber of the Year.”
