"He came here because he saw something special about this place," said Dr. William Silver, dean of the college's school of business and economics. "Kicking off the conference with Sandy Weill is our opportunity to see 'What did he see that made this a worthy investment? What is the return?' I think it goes beyond a financial incentive."
The conference, titled "Game Changers: Innovations and Leaders Transforming the North Bay Economy," will also feature the annual North Bay economic outlook from Dr. Robert Eyler, economics professor at Sonoma State and director of the school's Center for Regional Economic Analysis.
