Director's Corner

Last week was Fall Break for many and so is this week. I hope you and your families have/are enjoying a nice break! 

We've said it's coming and here it is! The Association of University Research Parks (AURP) International Conference kicks off today. We're super excited about all Huntsville and CRP is doing to welcome our research park and university economic development colleagues. And a special shout-out to our local sponsors for their support; to the City of Huntsville for sprucing up the Park; and to our CRP organizations that are rolling out the red carpet for these visitors--most of whom have never visited the #rocketcity! 

We welcomed our new CRP intern, Amber Bunyea, this month and nothing better than jumping right in with both feet! You'll see her out and about at our events, and you might even see her popping up to populate our social media accounts. 

Tuesday, October 17 is our next-to-last food truck fest. If you haven't had a chance to come out please, join us under the tents and in the shade for lunch options from five trucks. We'll be out there from 11-1 at 990 Explorer Blvd (corner of Discovery and Explorer Blvd.) You can always follow here for the latest! Be sure to keep an eye out on your email/our Facebook page--we have a friendly competition for all the companies in the Park in conjunction with our non-profit partner. Which company will reign supreme?

Thanks for reading and see you around the Park!
