We are pleased to announce our next Finance Roundtable, which will occur on Friday, March 8th. David Cruise, President MASSHIRE  Hampden County Workforce Board and Patricia Crosby, Executive Director MASSHIRE Franklin Hampshire County Workforce Board will discuss the Pioneer Valley Labor Market Blueprint.
