Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation held its annual retreat today in the conference room at Los Alamos National Bank. During the retreat, the board appointed two new members, Carol A. Clark of the Los Alamos Daily Post and Los Alamos Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kurt Steinhaus.
The LACDC was founded in 1983 by community-minded visionaries, and since that time, has played an important role in the development of the Los Alamos community. There are few local businesses or organizations that have not been clients, customers or constituents of LACDC’s diverse service offerings; and there are few residents who have not attended or taken part in one of its many community events. A common thread that runs through all that the organization does is the commitment to help build a robust community.
The LACDC is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of community leaders who bring a wide range of experience in local business. Board members are selected to represent major business constituencies within the community – including Chamber of Commerce members, major employers, local entrepreneurs, commercial property owners, the financial industry, professional services, not-for-profit organizations and key governmental units.
