BDB Virtual Introduction Program


Are you remotely working? No problem. The Business Development Board has launched a new program to encourage social distancing, but still providing opportunities for BDB members to be connected with other business leaders in the community. Below you'll find a list of the Business Development Board's management team, all who hold different specialties in the County. Please choose a BDB staff member who can make virtual introductions to help you continue networking, while most importantly, practice social distancing.
