The RDA is a catalyst organization which undertakes projects with state and
federal agencies; supports public-private partnerships; and collaborates
with agencies and individuals to transform the economy and quality of life
in Northwest Indiana. The organization serves the communities of Lake and
Porter counties, and provides funding for the Gary/Chicago International
Airport, commuter rail transportation, a regional bus system, Lake Michigan
shoreline development, and other economic development projects in Northwest
“We’re very grateful that Sherri is making the time to speak to us about
what her organization has accomplished--and plans to accomplish,” Chamber
Executive Director Heather Ennis said. “As a chamber, it’s critical to
provide these learning opportunities to both Chamber and community members.
And as engaged citizens, it’s important that we all take advantage of
occasions to look at issues from a regional perspective. Sherri will help us
with that process during the June 26 luncheon.”
Lemon Tree, Chesterton’s new Mediterranean restaurant, will be catering the
luncheon, while staff from Kramer & Leonard Office Products will be
providing welcoming remarks.
