 Upcoming MEDC Executive Board Meeting
January 10, 2011 
1 PM

                  Office Space For Rent
On January 1st, The GMACC will be moving out of the MEDC Office and into Village Hall. This opens the doors to several options for the MEDC. If anyone is interested in renting an office which also comes with a gorgeous conference/board room and a kitchen, we will be looking for a sub-lease, which can be short or long term. The MEDC could also move into the Chamber's office and provide the front offices to a possible new tenant. If you are interested please feel free to call the MEDC office or Dr. Neil Schlupp. More information to follow:  
The Montgomery Economic Development Corporation is a non for profit 501c6 Corporation supported by The Village of Montgomery and the Business community. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters for giving us the opportunity to serve The Village and Business Community of Montgomery.
