CREC Travels to Binghamton, New York

December 8, 2014

CREC’s Mark White traveled to Binghamton, New York to facilitate a focus group for stakeholders in New York State’s Appalachian regions as part of CREC’s work on the Appalachian Regional Commission’s 50th Anniversary.

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) is a regional economic development agency that represents a partnership of federal, state, and local government. Established by an act of Congress in 1965, ARC is composed of the governors of the 13 Appalachian states and a federal co-chair, who is appointed by the president. Local participation is provided through multi-county local development districts.
