Fall Erie Ambassadors Graduate

Ten 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 20 will join the ranks as Fall 2017 Erie Ambassador Graduation took place at the Erie Yacht Club on Tuesday, November 28th 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.

Some of the venues and hosts have included:

Highmark Caring Place, City of Erie, Baldwin Business Park County of Erie   Downtown Erie Redevelopment Tour  Erie County Technical School                Watson Curtze Mansion   Gannon Small Business Development Center  12th Street Historic Tour – EMTA & Rick Griffith Properties                                              The Brewerie at Union Station   Presque Isle/TREC  DonJon Shipyard  Bloom Collaborative  Bayfront Boat Tour by the Port Authority                                    Scott Enterprises/Splash Lagoon  Cruise Boat Terminal – Border Patrol  Erie Water Works    Erie Insurance   Erie Playhouse  Erie Maritime Museum
