President of DCC to address chamber
Pamela Edington, president of Dutchess Community College, will speak at the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel.
Edington assumed the presidency of DCC in August 2014. Among the goals she has set are: increasing the number of Dutchess students who complete a degree; developing additional programs of study to meet workforce needs; growing a service-learning program she established that lets students deepen their academic learning while helping to meet community-defined needs; and enhancing strategic relationships with local partners to enhance the educational pathway in Dutchess County.
Tickets to the breakfast are $25 for chamber members in advance, $30 for members at the door and $35 for nonmembers. To register, call (845) 4541700, ext. 1000, or go to dcrcoc.org.
