MAHOPAC—The Putnam County Business Council and the Putnam Valley Business Network announced today the merger of the two organizations. As a committee under the PCBC, the PVBN will lead the Business Council’s new Putnam County Traveling Business Network.
“As an extension of our rebranding efforts over the past year, we are focused on expanding the scope of our services from a solely advocacy-based organization by building our membership base of business leaders,” said Jennifer Maher, Putnam County Business Council Chairwoman. “We have been in discussions with the Putnam Valley Business Network since 2019 and the time is right for us to come together and pool our talent, strengths and resources to benefit the business community.”
“The Putnam Valley Business Network’s main purpose has always been to promote and support our local businesses,” said Patti Behen, most recent president and board member of PVBN. “Our member base stands to gain significant exposure through our alliance with the Putnam County Business Council.”
On Nov. 12th at 6:30 p.m., the Putnam County Business Council was scheduled to kick off a new virtual (via Zoom) “Traveling Business Network” with co-host Putnam Valley Business Network (PVBN).
“While we are eager to resume in-person networking and educational events, our first priority is the safety of our members and the community,” said Michael Bucci, vice chairman-elect, PCBC. “That said, our first ‘Traveling Business Network’ event will be virtual.”
The program will showcase Putnam businesses by offering attendees a platform to introduce their company and services. Participants will then break out into smaller groups in private rooms to connect with new contacts and expand upon conversations.
As health and safety allow, the PCBC and PVBN have plans to do in-person events in the near future with virtual options. To register for upcoming Networking and Educational Events, visit the putnamcountybusinesscouncil.com Calendar Events tab.
