At Putnam County’s annual “State of the County” event, County Executive Maryellen Odell announced a special “Year of Business Development”. Given that lofty goal, various elements of our business community are working together to help bring about the vision of a stronger, more economically sustainable Putnam County business community. On Thursday, June 23, from 8:00-9:30AM at the Putnam County Golf Club, the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors – CID Division, NYSCAR and the Putnam County Economic Development Corporation will come together for an annual meeting and breakfast to further advance the cause.
No surprise given her ambitious declaration, the speaker for the event will be County Executive Odell herself, and she will further outline her thoughts regarding why companies should call Putnam County their home. This collaboration of the county’s chamber of commerce, lead economic development agency and its leading real estate professionals is designed to help showcase available properties, spur business expansion and help new and existing businesses gain the tools and advocacy needed to succeed in today’s very challenging economic climate.
We believe that Putnam County’s economic fortunes are on an upswing, but the economy remains tight and all available resources and expertise need to be brought to bear to achieve measurable improvements. Our Putnam Industrial Development Agency has been revived, and initiatives were announced at last month’s Legislative Economic Development Committee meeting to clean up litter and promote a “hospitality attitude” throughout our county. Working together with skilled, trusted colleagues and supported by dedicated public servants, we can and will make a positive difference. Please consider attending this all-important business development event.

– Jennifer Maher, Chairwoman, the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce
