Mr. Basu earned his B.S. in Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 1990.  He earned his Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and his Master’s in Economics from the University of Maryland, College Park.  His Juris Doctor was earned at the University of Maryland School of Law in 2003.

TGCC is beginning the process of establishing its next two-year work plan for the 2015/2016 term and are honored to host Mr. Basu, as he plans to share the regional economic outlook firsthand with the business-based organization.  The occasion to bring Mr. Basu back to the TGCC membership was made available through sponsoring members from Mel’s Business Systems, Western Maryland Health System, Care Ventures and Pharmacare.   

“We are pleased and excited to welcome back an individual of Mr. Basu’s credentials to kick-off the second half of our year,” shared Brenda Smith, TGCC Executive Director.  “We always walk away from his presentations with new information.”
