Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt will be joined by a handful of fellow North Shore municipal leaders Wednesday for the North Shore Chamber of Commerce's annual State of the Region breakfast.
The event is held at the Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers. Following an early breakfast, Bettencourt, Danvers Town Manager Wayne Marquis, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, Beverly Mayor Bill Scanlon and their counterparts from Lynn, Gloucester, Amesbury and Newburyport will highlight opportunities and some challenges ahead in their respective communities.
Prior to that address, however, William Tinti of the North Shore Chamber will give an update on legislation relating to the Health Care Task Force's work on Obamacare Waivers for small businesses as well as the Chamber's involvement in trying to repeal the new state software services technology tax.
The breakfast and networking begins at 7:15 a.m., followed by the main program from 8-9 a.m. The cost to attend is $35 for members and $55 for non-members. Visit www.northshorechamber.org to register or call 978-774-8565.
