The Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) is pleased to announce the details for their annual investors meeting and luncheon on Tuesday, April 29, at the Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay. The keynote speaker will be Green Bay Packers Chairman Emeritus and former President and CEO Bob Harlan.

Bob Harlan served 37 years with the Packer organization, including 19 seasons as its President and CEO. After formally retiring January 28, 2008, he currently serves as a consultant to the organization. His vision and leadership of the franchise set a lofty standard within the world of professional sports. The organization enjoyed tremendous success under his stewardship and is positioned to succeed well into the future.

“We are thrilled to be able to have someone with the stature and prestige of Bob Harlan as the keynote speaker for our annual meeting this year,” said DCEDC Executive Director Bill Chaudoir. “His success over the years with the Packers demonstrates his achievements as a leader and can prove to be an inspiration to us all.”

In addition to the keynote address by Harlan, the annual investors meeting will include the presentation of the Door County Industry of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. The Industry of the Year Award recognizes a construction, service or manufacturing business that has made a substantial impact on the community and enjoyed significant accomplishments during the past year. The Entrepreneur of the Year Award celebrates those individuals who have taken the initiative to start and grow a successful small business in Door County. The luncheon meeting will also include the annual report to the community about the accomplishments of DCEDC during 2007.
