The Ventura Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Economic Outlook Breakfast, “Our Past, Present and Future” on Thursday, June 23, from 7:30-9:30 am at the Marriott Ventura Beach.
The event will explore the rich history of our founding industries here in Ventura, agriculture and oil, and discuss the unique opportunities that are available today. We will also look ahead to ask how do we maximize our existing resources for increased economic impact?
“As our City celebrates its sesquicentennial, we thought it only fitting to explore our rich history and examine the legacy of our agricultural and oil roots that were the catalyst in growing our community and our region,” said Stephanie Caldwell, President and CEO of the Ventura Chamber.
Featured will be speaker Edgar Terry, who is engaged in Ventura County’s agricultural community with his family company Terry Farms, Inc., which produces various vegetable and strawberry crops on 2,000 acres. He is also Senior Adjunct Professor at California Lutheran University where he teaches corporate finance in the Degree for Professionals Evening Program and the Master of Business Administration Program.
Also featured is Bob Poole, who currently serves as a Vice President with the Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA,) . Between 2011 and 2015 Bob served as Public and Government Affairs Manager for oil exploration and production company Santa Maria Energy.
