PARMA, Ohio -- Mayor Tim DeGeeter begins a second year of Economic Development Forums with a meeting on March 21.

The meeting will be hosted by Bryant & Stratton College, at 12955 Snow Road, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. The meeting is intended to provide information for Parma’s business community and to allow for an interactive exchange between attendees, Mayor DeGeeter and his economic development team.

Mayor DeGeeter and Dave Nedrich, president of the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce, will provide opening remarks, and Parma’s Economic Development staff – Director Erik Tollerup and Economic Development Officer Shelley Cullins - will provide updates.

The main presentation - about Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program – will be given by Joe Gross and Molly Tyson from Tri-C, and Parma Police Chief Robert Miller will also offer brief remarks.

“The main purpose of these meetings is to open the channels of communication with the business community and to keep them open,” Mayor DeGeeter said. “Last year showed us that these meetings usually lead to healthy dialogue.”

Members of the Parma business community who are interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Shelley Cullins, City of Parma, or 440 -885 8860.
