The Thurston County Chamber invites community members to join them for the Thurston Chamber’s October Forum Wednesday, Oct. 12, at the Hotel RL Olympia. This month forum attendees will hear from Bill McSherry, vice president of State & Local and Global Corporate Citizenship for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Boeing is looking forward to its second 100 years, and they want to celebrate and thank you, our community leaders for their key role in creating the business environment for Boeing and many other innovation-based companies to become established and thrive in Washington. McSherry will also discuss the role of community leaders in Thurston County as competition intensifies from aerospace and technology companies from all over the globe. Finally, McSherry will share Boeing’s plans for the next 100 years.
Named to his position in June 2014, McSherry is responsible for Commercial Airplanes’ state and local operations, including Global Corporate Citizenship, in the Northwest and South Carolina regions. He leads a team of specialists who manage relationships with elected officials and business leaders, advocate for key issues that advance Boeing’s business objectives, and find philanthropic opportunities to give back to the communities where Boeing employees live and work.
Before joining The Boeing Company in 2010, McSherry served concurrently as special adviser to Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, and as director of Economic Development at the Puget Sound Regional Council.
Forum tickets include lunch. The price for Chamber members is $25 and $30 for non-members. Advance registration is encouraged. Register online at www.thurstonchamber.com
