Welcome to 2018!

I am so proud of the work GSFABA has accomplished in the last three years promoting the business community in the Hilltowns. I'm pleased to be a resident of this vibrant region and look forward to seeing our businesses continue to grow and succeed.

But, all good things must come to an end—I'll be leaving this position on Friday, February 2, to do new things!

I've very much enjoyed working with so many great people and thank you for your friendship, support, and generosity over the past three years. The GSFABA board will soon announce a new, exciting strategic plan and then begin a search for an executive director to help them bring it to fruition. Look for updates in the next Business Bulletin.

In the last three years, we initiated the highly-successful Business After Hours program; expanded our marketing efforts, including the distribution of over 30,000 area maps last year; collaborated with The Art Garden and Phyllis Labanowski to create Hilltown Arts and Thriving Community Happenings (HATCH), which funded ten new community art projects; redesigned the ShelburneFalls.com and GSFABA websites; and established West County Arts and Culture, which produced the Fabulous February Fringe Festival in 2017, with the second Festival coming up very soon (see below).

Working with the business community and the towns in GSFABA's service area has been a fun adventure! I look forward to continuing to support the vitality of our special region as a private citizen and a performing artist.

It's been fun! Thanks, again, and all the best,

Carmela Lanza-Weil
Executive Director
