Year in Review Meeting Set for December 16

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Peter Gault and Bob PetersIn what has become a Cornwall tradition for over 15 years, Team Cornwall will host its popular Year in Review meeting on Wednesday December 16th.

The meeting annually attracts well over 300 community leaders who are eager to hear a recap of the year’s economic activity, compiled by the City’s Economic Development Department.

The meeting will be held at Galaxy Cinemas on Second Street. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp.

The Year in Review report summarizes major development activity that has occurred in Cornwall over the past 12 months.

“We present information on all of the investments, expansions and notable developments in one relatively short but powerful presentation,” said Bob Peters, Senior Development Officer. “The goal is to showcase the overall positive impact that results from individual decisions to invest.”

The meeting is a particularly important one according to Team Cornwall Chair Peter Gault.

“We all have our own circles of influence, people that we interact with on a regular basis,” said Mr. Gault. “The Year in Review report allows us to get the big picture of what is happening in Cornwall, yet also provides enough details on specific projects that we can share within our own networks.”

“Success breeds success, and we can all play a role in helping attract the next investor by speaking positively about our community,” added Mr. Gault.

Open to All

The meeting is open to all – regardless of Team Cornwall membership. A light breakfast will be served at 7:00 am, followed by the regular meeting.

Local Artist and Vendor Bazaar

A bazaar featuring one-of-a-kind gift ideas from over a dozen local artists and vendors will once again greet attendees as they exit the theatre.  The popular bazaar is organized by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.

Team Cornwall Achievements

Along with the presentation from Cornwall Economic Development, Team Cornwall will also be highlighting its members’ efforts and accomplishments to promote Cornwall over the past year.
