Tech Valley Connect’s 1st Anniversary Party

On April 6th, Tech Valley Connect hosted their 1st Anniversary Celebration.  With proceeds from the cocktail reception going to the YouthBuild program at Northeast Parent & Child’s Society, the cocktail reception was well attended at Pat’s Barn in the Rensselaer Technology Park.  Tech Valley Connect’s President, Angela McNerney said, “I didn’t expect to have as much fun as I did!!”  A cross section of industry was present from around the Capital Region and great conversations took place in the way they often do when there are good people and great energy in the room.  $4000.00 was raised for the YouthBuild progam and we look forward to working with Northeast Parent & Child’s Society in the future.  Our common ground lays in the fact that we both focus on workforce development; we just do it in different ways.  To learn more about the YouthBuild program at Northeast Parent & Child’s Society, please click on;
