Meet Justin Marcotte, the current Board Chairperson for Community Futures (CF) Sunrise. Justin has been instrumental in guiding this organization through many challenging changes and exciting developments.  His business insight, connections in the region and passion for entrepreneurship has encouraged CF Sunrise to grow its business services, responding to the needs of the business community.  Justin states, “I decided to join the board because I enjoyed participating in the business training sessions offered by CF Sunrise, and I love small business.  I wanted to represent my local area and also lend my knowledge to the corporation.”

“Becoming chair of the board has been a great experience.  It has changed the way I look at the business side of Community Futures.  My previous focus was always more on community involvement and economic development.  But I’m now aware of the broad scope of this national organization.  Our clients often have success, but may also have tough decisions to make.  My focus now includes ensuring the CF Sunrise staff knows that the board supports their efforts as they navigate these situations with our clients.  As the Chairperson, I’m available for knowledge sharing and brainstorming.  I also support our Board in identifying directional shifts that may better support entrepreneurship in our region.  As Board members, I feel it’s important to review our practices, policies and expand our comfort zones.  This will help us achieve the performance standards that the corporation sets each year.”

Justin Marcotte truly exemplifies the spirit of the Community Futures program.  Thank you Justin for your dedication to the CF Sunrise board!
