Carthage Business and Professional Coalition logo Carthage is excited to announce the reinstatement of the Business and Professional Coalition, the College’s signature business-led and business-focused community program.

The late Ralph Tenuta, who served as a Carthage trustee for 16 years, founded the Business and Professional Coalition in the early 1990s. It brings together the region’s leading business, civic, and professional leaders to discuss topics that promote learning, conversation, and relationship building. The coalition will offer programming that includes notable guest speakers discussing relevant issues including workplace diversity, sustainability, workforce development, and technology.
