BCEC meeting May 2012
                         BCEC Meetings   


BCEC Meetings are held at the MEDC Office, 200 Webster @ 8:30 am on the 2nd Thursday of each month. These are informal business round table breakfast meetings, in which the Village staff and elected officials work with the business community on making things happen in Montgomery.  


The MEDC applauds the Villages effort in helping in the development process.This is just one example of the many efforts of how the Village and the MEDC are working together to encourage future growth in Montgomery. The last few meetings have been structured around TIF districts. Previously, this committee addressed the Orchard Road expansion and the Stuart Sports Complex

Seeking Breakfast Topics


The Business Climate Enhancement committee would like your input.  Is there a specific topic that would help you and your business prosper and grow?  Perhaps you have a product or service you would like to share with the business community.


Several times throughout the year, this committee holds a breakfast meeting where a speaker or panel of speakers are brought in to help educate our business leaders. Our goal is to ensure that the topics are informative and beneficial to the business community. It also provides a great networking opportunity. Over the next year, the BCEC will be discussing the Orchard Road opportunities, if this is something of interest to you.  


Please email or call the MEDC office and let us know if other topics may be of interest to you so we can start planning our next breakfast event.


New for 2012
Property Tours  
The Business Climate Enhancement Committee would like to feature an open house/tour of the vacant properties through out the community. If you are interested in highlighting your property and/or sponsoring an open house, please call the MEDC Office and schedule your property to take part in this exciting new venture.
