Pictures from the DCEDC 35th Annual Dinner Celebration

On Thursday April 28th, over 240 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating 35 years of economic success for DeKalb County.

The evening started with a networking and cocktail reception, and a book signing by Keynote presenter, Nicole Martin, Founder HR Boost.

The event continued with a plated dinner deliciously prepared by Faranda’s Banquet Center, DeKalb, IL.

DCEDC Executive Director Paul Borek provided a compelling update on recent economic activity, while the Opportunity Unbound team members provided an interactive session about the DeKalb County initiative that DCEDC is administrating.

Following, Nicole Martin provided an upbeat presentation about employment issues and how to improve leadership skills.

In closing, original and active board member Doug Dashner gave the champagne toast to recognize the work of the organization, and how planning of DCEDC actually began 37 years ago with notable DeKalb County representatives.
