Bristol's EDC to host Roundtable Discussions Monday


The Bristol Economic Development Commission welcomes bristol businesses in manufacturing (non-marine), for an informal round table discussion on Monday, Jan. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Burnside Building, second floor.

The EDC identified six sectors to focus on over its next six meetings in 2014— manufacturing non-marine, marine trades, real estate, education, agriculture, and commercial fishing.

"We want this to be an intimate roundtable discussion to get their opinions and voices heard," said Ethan Tucker, chair of the EDC, during its Dec. 9 meeting. "We want to get their feedback and hopefully ID the ones that are struggling and the ones with potential growth."


Anyone with questions can email Ethan Tucker, chair of the commission, at
