PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Putnam County Chamber of Commerce recently announced that Dr. Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester, and Meghan Taylor, regional director of Mid-Hudson Empire State Development, will present keynote remarks at the chamber's seventh annual “Best in Business” Trailblazer Awards dinner at Mahopac's Villa Barone Hilltop Manor on Thursday, March 23.

As the largest business recognition and networking event in Putnam County, the Putnam Chamber's Trailblazer Awards presentation seeks to further educate and inspire local business leaders through experienced and respected leadership perspectives and best practices, according to a release from the Chamber.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Marsha Gordon, a long-time 'go-to' person on legislative and regulatory issues throughout the Hudson Valley, and Meghan Taylor, former president of the Putnam County EDC and now regional director of Mid-Hudson Empire State Development,” said Jennifer Maher, Chairwoman, PCCC. “We want businesses to embrace and help strengthen Putnam’s brand as a destination to live, work and play. In doing so, we drive tourism and grow our population – key elements to business growth and vitality.”

Gordon said, “This event's celebration of excellence in business and community leadership in Putnam County showcases why our region continues to prosper and grow. It is a privilege to be speaking at the Trailblazer Awards to honor the impressive winners.”

Gordon and Taylor will focus on business trends affecting the Hudson Valley Region, as well as opportunities to impact growth by emphasizing and building upon Putnam’s strengths as a community to live, work and play, the release said.

“From its status as one of New York’s safest and healthiest counties, to excellent schools, scenic beauty and easy access to the New York Metro area, Putnam has an incredibly unique array of features that make it attractive to live, work and play," said Taylor.

Sponsorships for the Trailblazers Award dinner, a countywide event, are available ranging from $500 to $5000. There will also be a printed program for the evening, with various sized ads available.
