Fall 2016 Erie Ambassadors to Graduate Tuesday Evening

Nov 29, 2016 | Posted in ERCGP in the News, News

Nearly 10 years ago, the ERCGP kicked off a training program designed to underscore local assets by educating citizens through a nine session, hands-on course, elevating those assets' importance to community and economic development. To date, 500+ citizens have now graduated from this program and 23 will join the ranks as Fall 2016 Erie Ambassador Graduation takes place at the Erie Yacht Club on Tuesday, November 29th at 5:30pm.

While the shores of our region have many gems to share, nine sessions limits the number of venues available for tour. The curriculum changes from year to year, and alumni are offered the opportunity to join current classes featuring new curriculum.
