GGP Announces Virtual Annual Meeting in May

Geauga Growth Partnership (GGP) is pleased to announce our Annual Business Meeting which will take place virtually on Wednesday, May 19 at 8:00 am. At this event, GGP leadership will present organizational updates and specifically address the events of 2020 and how they have shaped GGP initiatives into the future. In addition, the Frank Samuel Distinguished Service Award will be presented to a very deserving recipient, Tracy Jemison.   Also, one of our GGP Members will be recognized with the inaugural Excellence in Manufacturing Award, in partnership with MAGNET.

Finally, keynote Speaker, Mr. William H. Fruth, President of Policom Corporation, an independent economics research firm, will help us to discover if the Geauga County economy is growing or declining, what is causing this to happen, and what we need to do to enhance and improve the “economic quality of life” for our residents. For the past twenty-five years, William H. Fruth has served as an economic development consultant for communities throughout the United States. Fruth has personally evaluated the data for more than 800 local economies in the United States, created more than 200 economic and community studies, and has provided presentations and workshops for state and national associations and community forums in 40 states.
