The Turlock Chamber of Commerce is allowing members of Turlock to discuss the economy over breakfast in their Eggs, Issues & Economics event.
During this event, Turlockers are invited to hear two featured speakers, Joe Raso and Bree Langemo, to share “critical steps to becoming informed, inspired, and innovative.”
Raso is president of Blane, Canada Ltd., which is a leading economic development management-consulting firm headquartered in the greater Chicago region.
He is seen as an innovator in community and economic development, whose organizations have received more than a dozen awards for business retention & expansion, targeted industry recruitment, marketing, and branding.
Langemo provides overall strategic and operational direction for the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative and focuses on developing high impact partnerships with academic, government, profit and non-profit organizations.
With more than a decade in higher education as a faculty, chair, and dean, her work has focused on student success by helping to implement the Lumina Foundation’s Achieving the Dream grant and leading a number of institutional student success initiatives centered on the First Year Experience.
This breakfast will come at a $40 charge to members of the Chamber of Commerce, and $50 to non-members.
It is being held on Wednesday, Aug. 17, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., at the Turlock Golf and Country Club, located at 10532 Golf Link Road.
