Stamford, CT (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
Governor Dannel P. Malloy will use an all-business forum to discuss the “state of the state” when he addresses a special meeting of the Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG CT), the premier global association for professionals involved in corporate growth, corporate development, and mergers and acquisitions for mid to large companies on November 20 at Fairfield University.
The event, hosted by Fairfield University's Dolan School of Business and co-sponsored with the Turnaround Management Association, Crossroads Venture Group and the Connecticut Technology Council, will also feature a panel moderated by Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Catherine Smith on doing business in the state.
ACG CT President Karin (McKittrick) Kovacic said, “This is a major event for the Connecticut business community in general, but it has particular importance for those of us focused on corporate growth, funding and innovation. The state has made major strides in recent years in creating a climate that encourages capital deployment and job creation. We look forward to hearing more from Gov. Malloy and Commissioner Smith.”
The event, hosted by Fairfield University's Dolan School of Business, will begin at 3 pm and end with a cocktail reception with the governor from 6:45 to 8 pm. For additional information, contact Ms. D. Weinstein, TMA Chapter Administrator at (203) 733-7507 or cttma(at)turnaround(dot)org.
