NEW BRUNSWICK — Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald Rios, Freeholder Kenneth Armwood and Freeholder Charles Kenny will be the featured guests tomorrow at “Make It & Move It Middlesex,” a four-part economic development series hosted by the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Make It & Move It Middlesex is designed to connect the region’s business community with legislators and county resources. The series was built on the momentum gained in the September 2017 Middlesex County Business Summit, where attendees were able to navigate the many business resources provided by Middlesex County.
“At its core, the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce serves as a conduit to local, county, and statewide resources to make sure our Central Jersey business community thrives,” said Lina Llona, President, MCRCC & Convention and Visitors Bureau.
This session will take place Tuesday, March 20, 8 a.m., at the Rutgers Visitor Center, 100 Sutphen Road, Piscataway, NJ. The event will be moderated by Bert Baron of WCTC 1450-AM. Baron served as moderator of the first two installments of Make It & Move It Middlesex.
“Our goal at the Middlesex Chamber is to help businesses prosper by closing the gap between the business community and the abundant resources that are available. Freeholder Director Rios, Freeholder Armwood and Freeholder Kenny have an on-the-ground and practical understanding of how our county economic development policies and public resources help to grow our regional economy,” Llona said.
Make It & Move It Middlesex will hold its fourth and final session in April 2018 with a theme of “Women in Government.”
“This program is intentionally designed to maximize the benefit of running a business in Central Jersey,” said Craig Schlosser, Vice President, MCRCC/Convention & Visitors Bureau. “There are myriad resources available that often go untapped. We need to make sure our business community enjoys the full complement of services available for them to succeed,” he said.
