It's All About Economic Development, Jobs Growth and Retention: 9/20/17

As citizens of the United States, we enjoy a quality of life like no other in this world. And, as such, we are both blessed and cursed. The curse side of that equation being our inability to give up any of the benefits of the quality of life we have become so used to.

And, the BRBC, representing the region’s businesses, knows full well that economic development drives jobs retention and growth. The very fuel needed for a good quality of life for all.

That is why the BRBC’s Economic Development Committee, led by Paul Antinozzi of Antinozzi Associates Architecture & Interior Design and Kenneth Oppedisano of Main Enterprises Inc. Mechanical Contractors, developed the concept of publishing a quarterly review of the region's economic development progress several years ago.

That publication became a reality and it’s called The QR. The BRBC publishes The QR four times a year – twice in print and twice as a digital update.

Our very popular Leadership Greater Bridgeport (LGB) community leadership development program, about to embark on its 29th year, has a few openings available for this year’s class.

And, if you are an inpidual who has a desire to assume a role of responsibility in political, civic and professional organizations, this dynamic program inspires a commitment to community and develops leadership skills among all its participants. Talk to your employers about exploring the opportunity.

Little League Champions Redux: 9/6/17

When the Fairfield American Little League team was invited last Friday night to take the field to stand with the Yankee players for the playing of the national anthem, I couldn’t help but think back to 1989 when the world champion Trumbull National Little League team went to the first two games of the World Series in Oakland, CA.

You see, way back then, I was the CEO of Physicians Health Services, a health plan which was one of the largest employers in Trumbull where I also lived. After Trumbull National had beaten Taiwan 5-2 in Williamsport, PA to win the Little League world championship, our company wanted to do something to congratulate the team and celebrate their incredible achievement.
