EGCW Annual Luncheon
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to join us at our Annual Membership Meeting. EGCW was honored to have Senator Kim Ward and Mr. Keith Welks, Esq., Deputy State Treasurer for Fiscal Operations / Senior Advisor for Policy, join us. Mr. Welks spoke to us on a new Pennsylvania financing program, The Pennsylvania Sustainable Energy Finance (PennSEF) Program. See below to view Mr. Welks' presentation.
In addition, we provided results and highlights on economic development in Westmoreland County and the challenges that are ahead of us. Few could argue the challenge with our workforce is perhaps our greatest and is one of immediate concern not only for our county but for the region.
