INDIANAPOLIS | A passion for enhancing Indiana’s economic climate and the prosperity of its citizens earned local business leader Mark Maassel recognition recently as an Indiana Chamber of Commerce 2012 Volunteer of the Year.
Maassel, president and CEIO of the Northwest Indiana Forum, hosted a regional forum in summer 2012 for Indiana Vision 2025, the Indiana Chamber’s long-term economic development plan. These forums brought together area businesspeople to discuss how to apply Indiana Vision 2025 goals to specific regional challenges and opportunities. Maassel helped identify who should attend and participated in pre-forum surveys, interviews and more.
“Gaining statewide support for Indiana Vision 2025 is critical to bringing the goals to fruition,” said Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar in a statement. “Mark helped us do exactly that by engaging area leaders and offering his own expertise and input during those invaluable forum conversations.”
Also recognized as an Indiana Chamber Volunteer of the Year were Marci Crozier, regional director of marketing and sales at Omni 41 Health & Fitness Connection in Schererville, and Bruce Guiliani, of Indianapolis.
