Stark Forum: Inspiring Our Future
Beginning March 6 with a county-wide panel of elected officials including the Mayors of Canton, Alliance, Massillon & North Canton, and the President of the Jackson Township Trustees.

The Canton Regional Chamber, along with our ystark! and Leadership Stark County departments, are bringing a new quarterly event to our business community on March 6, 2018:Stark Forum: Inspiring Our Future presented by AultCare.

Stark Forum will address a wide range of issues that affect local businesses, including workforce, health care, education, economic development, tourism, innovation, public policy and more. With the help of our distinguished invited guests and moderator, our goal is to take an in-depth look at how current issues may shape Stark County’s future, and what we can do moving forward:

  • How can we accelerate and encourage economic growth?
  • How can we think differently and more boldly about Canton/Stark County’s future?
  • How can we identify opportunities for positive change? 

At our first Stark Forum, you’ll get a “peek behind the curtain” from our elected officials:

Tom Bernabei, Mayor of Canton
Alan Andreani, Mayor of Alliance
Kathy Catazaro-Perry, Mayor of Massillon
David Held, Mayor of North Canton
Todd Hawke, President of the Jackson Township Trustees 

They will add their unique perspective to current community conversations and initiatives. Hear their ideas on job growth and retention, increased county collaboration, and “where Stark goes from here.” Todd Porter, Special Projects Editor for The Canton Repository, will moderate this event and future events, and will allow time for Q&A.
