At Moxxy, serving our local community is just as important as hot coffee on a cold morning, and today we get to celebrate both! Please join us in congratulating Account Manager Meagan Edwards, who has been accepted into the Leadership Monterey County program as a member of the inaugural 2018 class. A collaboration of the Monterey County Business Council and the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce, the 10‐month program admitted 27 participants in leadership roles from a wide variety of sectors including agriculture, government and nonprofit businesses and is designed to help professional leaders understand the role their companies and others play in creating and maintaining a thriving economy in the county.
“Leadership Monterey County will help Meagan further deepen her understanding of the issues facing our local community, which will better arm her to offer strategically sound marketing and communications recommendations to Moxxy’s clients,” said Karen Nardozza, president and CEO of Moxxy. “Many of our clients are agriculture and ag‐related organizations, including associations and nonprofits as well as ag production and ag tech firms. Meagan is already serving and engaged in national and regional ag and fresh produce organizations, so focusing on local issues is a logical next step in the development of her expertise.”
In addition to heightening awareness of what drives economic progress in the area, the Leadership Monterey County program will benefit Moxxy and our clients by allowing Meagan to build a foundation of collective advocacy and gain a deeper understanding of what is needed to ensure area businesses get the support they need to grow.
“I’m incredibly honored to be selected as a participant in this competitive program,” said Meagan. “Community involvement is a priority for me and one of the stated core values at Moxxy. I look forward to getting to know my fellow classmates as well as cultivating deeper business relationships in the community where I live and work.”
Topics covered in the program will include:
- South County
- Government and Law
- Infrastructure and Environment
- Defense and Security
