LAKE GEORGE, NY – The Lake Champlain – Lake George Regional Planning Board (LCLGRPB) has been awarded 2022 Economic Development Partner of the Year by the North Country Chamber of Commerce (NCCC).
The award was presented to LCLGRPB Director, Beth Gilles, at the Friday night’s Annual Dinner hosted by the Chamber. The award recognizes a collaboration that has grown between the two organizations throughout the pandemic.
