New Vision, the countywide nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the income, quality of life, and employment stability of Yakima County residents, will hold its annual meeting on March 26th at noon at the State Fair Park Room in Yakima (1301 South Fair Avenue). The association will introduce its officers and Board members at this event, pay tribute to some of New Vision’s key leaders, and outline its 2012 accomplishments at the luncheon event.

Dean Allen, CEO of McKinstry, will provide a keynote address at the New Vision luncheon.  Allen’s company has grown from humble roots to become a national leader in building management and energy efficiency.  Under his leadership, McKinstry has grown from a mechanical contractor into a comprehensive design, build, operate, and maintain enterprise with over $400 million per year in revenues and over 1,600 employees.
