A Legacy of Leadership
The Economic Council of Martin County has a very long and strong legacy of leadership and community involvement.  Community leaders Larry Buchanan, John T. Carmody Jr., Peter Cummings, John Dodge, Kenneth Ferrari, Bud Jordan and Erling Speer took the initative to form the Economic Council of Martin County in 1985.  Since that time there have been numerous successful initiatives undertaken by the Council.


Recognizing the importance of the arts and culture to the County’s economic well-being, the Economic Council formed the Arts and Cultural Task force. This task force immediately began a cooperative effort with a dormant arts foundation to form and fund the Martin County Council for the Arts.
