History

Strategic Plan ArrowIn collaboration with Mayor Richard Alcombright, the North Adams Partnership was founded by John DeRosa, a local attorney, Joseph Thompson, Director of MASS MoCA, and Mary Grant, President of MCLA, as a response to the economic challenges facing North Adams and as a vehicle to fully leverage North Adams’ cultural, educational, and recreational assets.

The Partnership is a privately funded 501c3 not-for-profit corporation governed by a Board of Directors who represent a cross section of the diverse interests of North Adams and the Berkshire North region.
