Even in the dark times of 2020, there is a sense of optimism for what the future can hold for the city of Trenton. As part of its Trenton Economic Development Series, the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce holds a session titled “Growing in Trenton: A Conversation with Bernie Flynn” on Thursday, December 10, at noon. Register at www.princetonmercerchamber.org for the virtual event. Cost: $15.
Bernie Flynn is a longtime member of the Trenton business community who since February of this years has served as the volunteer CEO of Mercer Street Friends. He had been a deputy attorney general for the state before beginning a long career with Ewing-based NJM Insurance Group. He retired as CEO of NJM in 2018.
In addition to his work with Mercer Street Friends, Flynn is also co-chair of Greater Trenton, a nonprofit with a mission to advance economic development and revitalization projects in Trenton. He is also on the board of Choose NJ, a nonprofit that promotes New Jersey as a location for domestic and international businesses looking to expand or relocate their operations.
Engaging in conversation with Flynn will be Brenda Ross-Dulan, the chair of the Princeton Chamber and the managing principal of the Ross Dulan Group, a strategy consulting firm. She has previously served on the board of Greater Trenton in addition to work with other nonprofit initiatives. She is also part of the governor’s Advisory Council for the Restart and Recovery of the State of New Jersey.
The event will open with remarks by Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora.
