In October of 2014, we welcomed both current and potential members to join us for hors d’oeuvres as we heard about Rensselear County economic development plans. Guests could meet members of the Sand Lake Business Association and find out more about our association. A highlight of this event was our guest speaker, Bob Pasinella, President of the Rensselaer County Industrial Development Agency. He discussed the Industrial Development Agency (IDA) Programs, and what they do to help spur economic growth within the county. He also answered questions from the audience.
