FLORHAM PARK, NJ – Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno will speak at the 10th Annual Business & Municipal Growth Forum being held Sept. 16 at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany.

The event, being sponsored by the Morris County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC), runs 11:30 to 1:30, with Guadagno to serve at the keynote speaker.

As lieutenant governor, Guadagno oversees the New Jersey Partnership for Action (PFA), the state’s comprehensive economic development strategy. PFA is a three-pronged public-private approach to economic development and the starting point for all initiatives, policies and efforts to grow New Jersey’s economy and create quality, sustainable jobs in our communities.

PFA is composed of the Business Action Center, which provides the business community with a single point of contact; the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, serving as the state’s “bank for business;” and Choose New Jersey, an independently funded and operated 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation created to encourage and nurture economic growth throughout New Jersey. MCEDC is charged with driving economic development throughout the county and works in tandem with the PFA.
