BHC Seeks Participants in Strategic Planning Process

Woonsocket, RI (January 15, 2016)

Blackstone Heritage Corridor, Inc. (BHC) announces it is currently seeking participants for its three different mission-related committees. The non-profit that serves 25 communities between Worcester, MA, and Providence, RI, has defined three areas of focus: Environment (including Recreation), chaired by Donna Williams, Blackstone Headwaters Coalition; Historical and Cultural Resources, chaired by Anne Conway, Museum of Work and Culture; and Economic Development and Community Revitalization, chaired by John Gregory, Northern RI Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of each subcommittee is to facilitate the development of BHC’s new strategic plan. Each group will identify visions and strategies for achieving those visions.

“Blackstone Heritage Corridor is celebrating the 30th year of the National Heritage Corridor designation this year and we are excited to have many people at the table to help plan our future,” explained Charlene Perkins Cutler, BHC’s executive director. “This is an excellent opportunity for someone with a passion for the National Heritage Corridor to really get involved. We’re looking for great ideas. We’re planning how we will take the National Heritage Corridor from 2016 to 2026.”

If interested in participating, please direct a letter specifying an area of interest to Charlene Perkins Cutler at by January 31, 2016. “In addition to providing great networking opportunities, time served on these subcommittees also can be contributed to our Volunteers-in-Parks program,” Cutler added.
