Kerridge To Deliver State of the City at Roseville 2011 Event
In these tough economic times, is there any cause for excitement? Roseville City Manager Ray Kerridge thinks so. “Roseville’s evolution to a metropolitan city is underway,” says Kerridge. “New initiatives are allowing us to realize that vision. Roseville is definitely open for business.”
A University Task Force and the newly formed Community Development Corporation will add new dimension to the ever expanding and evolving vision. Kerridge will be speaking on the challenges, opportunities and what’s being done in Roseville and South Placer County to create a healthier bottom line when he presents the State of the City at the 26th Annual South Placer Economic Forum – Roseville 2011.
Co-chaired by former Roseville Mayor, Gina Garbolino and Sutter Roseville Medical Center CEO, Pat Brady, this year’s event will give local business people insight into the new business landscape and the changes companies have made to survive and thrive in the new economy.
The one day event, hosted annually by the Roseville Chamber of Commerce, promotes business and community development in South Placer County. Kerridge will talk about the promising future plans for Roseville in his first State of the City address. Hundreds of business professionals are expected to attend this educational and informative event which includes breakout sessions on economic recovery and healthcare, lunchtime entertainment, a trade show, and sponsorship opportunities. Following the day’s events, there will be a cocktail party for local business professionals to network and unwind.
The event is Friday, May 20 from 11:30 am to 7 pm at the Hewlett Packard campus, 8000 Foothills Rd., Bldg. R-10. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased online. For more event details, visit www.roseville2011.com or call (916) 783-8136.
