This Business Roundtable Event will focus on the book “Acres of Change”, with an emphasis on 50 years of business and industry. Many locals are among the authors of this updated history of DeKalb County business and industry, including Paul Borek, DCEDC’s current Executive Director, and Roger Hopkins, DCEDC’s former Executive Director. For this Business Roundtable, Paul Borek and Roger Hopkins will pair with Bob Boey and Jerry Smith, both past presidents of DCEDC, to take a look at DeKalb County’s business and industry in the last 50 years. Now the home of the Sycamore Industrial Park, this event will fittingly be held in what was once one of this area’s largest employers, Anaconda Cable & Wire Company.
