EDC celebrates 25 years of service to Solano County

Solano EDC will kick off its 25th year of service Jan. 24 with the annual meeting, 11:30 a.m. at the Fairfield Hilton Garden Hotel.

Sam Zuckerman, senior correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, will be the keynote speaker for the annual meeting. Zuckerman has been with the newspaper since the late 90s, and currently focuses on regional economic and financial issues.

It was 25 years ago that a group of Solano County business and government leaders determined that the economic future of the area needed the support of a countywide organization that could bring together all the key players to assure a balanced and steady growth.

“The dreams of a few have resulted in today’s Solano EDC,” Mike Ammann said. “Today, EDC has proven the wisdom of the EDC founders. Through the years the organization has been able to bring together private sector and government officials to work for the common good. We are all in a better position today than we were before EDC was created.”

The annual meeting will highlight the accomplishments of 2007, and Zuckerman will give insight into the challenges and opportunities for economic growth during 2008.

“This is a critical time for Solano County,” Ammann said. “We are positioned to take advantage of the economic opportunities in biotech, services and energy expansion.”

Each year the annual meeting is a big event, and 300 are expected to attend.

For information regarding reservations, contact Pat at 707 864-1855.

Cost is $45 per person or $350 for a table of 8.

The Annual meeting is sponsored by: Gaw Van Male Counselors at Law, Lennar Mare Island, Travis Credit Union, Sutter Health, Umpqua Bank, Wells Fargo, Suisun Grape Growers Association, Reporter, Kaiser Permanente, Times-Herald, Solano Garbage Company, Potrero Hills Landfill and Touro University.
