NEW: Worcester Chamber CEO Murray To Get Lifetime Champion Award
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce announced today that the Lifetime Advocacy Champion Award given by The Workforce Solutions Group will be presented to Chamber president and CEO, Timothy P. Murray.
The group cited Mr. Murray’s “achievements over the past 8 years advocating for jobs for teenagers and young adults” as well as his “leadership on the Governor’s STEM Council…leading to increased investments in both the public and private sectors.”
The award will be presented at a luncheon on October 9 at the 4th Annual Massachusetts Jobs and Workforce Summit to be held at the Devens Common Conference Center in Devens. The theme of the day-long Summit will be accelerating economic growth, a goal that fits right in with the Chamber’s strategy of Recruit, Retain, and Incubate.
“I am honored to have been chosen for this recognition, said Murray. “I have enjoyed my work in the STEM arena and look forward to continuing to champion the cause at the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce. This critical sector of our economy will continue to grow and youth jobs and employment will remain an important component of our efforts as we work with employers to fill the jobs of the future.”
The Chamber and STEM
The Chamber has recently been active with the STEM community in Central Mass through a roundtable discussion held at the request of Congressman Joseph Kennedy and various other meetings with STEM leaders. The Central Mass Business Expo, slated for October 2 at the DCU Center, will feature an Innovation Stage with the robotics team at WPI, MassDiGI at Becker College, and a panel entitled: Education, Innovation and Venture Capital Panel where experts explore how the region can better capitalize on the synergies between our innovators and investors to create a robust start-up community in Central Mass.
