Other speakers at the event included Don Cunningham (President and CEO of Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation), Sal Panto, Jr. (Mayor, City of Easton), Steve Thode (Goodman Center for Real Estate Studies), Joseph Kelly (Director of Community and Economic Development, City of Bethlehem), Ryan Conrad (CEO of Lehigh Valley Association of REALTORS® (LVAR)), Therese Kelley (Croslis Realty and President of LVAR Board of Directors), and Loren Keim (Century 21 Keim).
On May 18, 2013, Brian then spoke to fellow alums, university administrators, and other guests at Lehigh University’s Renunion 2013 hosted at Linderman Library in Bethlehem, PA as part of their Mountain Talks event entitled Bold Thinking: A Vision for Sustainability.
