Karen Fisher to lead focus group discussion about Sullivan County

September 2, 2011

[FERNDALE] – Marketing expert Karen Fisher will lead a focus group discussion on “What inspires you about Sullivan County?” on Wednesday, September 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Ferndale.  The public is invited to be part of the focus group, hosted by Sullivan Renaissance, the Sullivan County Division of Planning and the Economic Development Corporation (EDC).

Karen Fisher is president of the marketing firm FisherMears Associates of Liberty.  She works with many businesses in Sullivan County, including Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the Villa Roma, Time Warner Cable, as well as community organizations like the Sullivan County Partnership and the Sullivan County Visitors Association.

The September 7th focus group is an opportunity to share your thoughts and insights with the EDC, which is charged with advancing economic development in Sullivan County.  It’s a chance to help marketers understand: “What brought you to Sullivan County and why do you stay?” and “How would you describe Sullivan County to someone thinking of moving or opening a business here?”

The discussion will be moderated by Sullivan County Planning Commissioner Luiz Aragon.

Refreshments will be served.  Space is limited, so to participate contact 845-295-2445 or  For more information about the work of the EDC, go to
