President Ramsammy Named to NYS EDC Board

September 4, 2020

Hudson Valley Community College President Roger A. Ramsammy has been named to a two-year term on the board of directors of the New York State Economic Development Council (NYSEDC).

The appointment was made at the Economic Development Council’s annual meeting on Sept. 2.

The Economic Development Council was created more than 30 years ago to encourage and develop state-wide and regional economic development. The organization includes 900 members from a variety of fields including workforce development, economic development, finance, banking, education and private corporations.

“One of the main goals of the EDC is to promote New York State as a world-class destination for businesses looking to re-locate or grow,” said Dr. Ramsammy. “One of the ways we can accomplish that, I believe, is to show that we have a world-class community college system in SUNY and the ability to deliver skilled employees when and where they are needed. I look forward to helping the EDC and New York State achieve that goal.”
