Join us as we recognize local companies and professionals for their commitment to our community and present the "Best of the Best" Awards at our 2020 Annual Meeting Dinner.

The event features a 5:30 pm reception featuring wine, beer, soft drinks and specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a full service plated dinner at 6:30. *


The Evening's Special Guest Speaker is David Lehman, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), the state agency that oversees a wide range of programs promoting business retention and recruitment, brownfield redevelopment and restoration, the arts, historic preservation and tourism.


Governor Ned Lamont nominated him for the position earlier this year. Mr. Lehman will also serve as the Governor’s Senior Economic Advisor. He is already hard at work at creating an innovative public-private partnership between DECD and CERC known as the Partnership to Advance the Connecticut of Tomorrow (PACT), a new economic development delivery model for our state.
