Commerce Secretary Ed Gaunch joined us at the Marriott on October 12 to share his view of West Virginia’s opportunities to “Pivot to the Future.”

He shared information with over 20 attendees from across the state on all the agencies under his leadership and pointed out the positives of the state, as well as some of the negatives needing to be overcome.

Secretary Gaunch told the story of his first “paying job” serving as a runner for the agency he how leads!

Thanks to the Secretary for allowing us to share his presentation.

We also thank Rachel Marshall of the Morgantown Holiday Inn for bringing Halloween treats for everyone.

Thanks also go the the West Virginia Retailers Association for sponsoring our meeting.
