Buffalo, New York – January 14, 2010 - The U.S. House of Representatives Democratic Issues and Job Caucus in Washington, D.C. invited Sundra L. Ryce, President and CEO of SLR Contracting & Service Company, Inc., of Buffalo, NY to speak at the event. SLR is a full-service General Construction Company, specializing in Commercial Construction, Construction Management and Design-Build services across the Northeast.
The House of Representatives heard from a distinguished panel of three, including Ms. Ryce. Ms. Ryce shared her company’s vision, strategic plan, and the details of how SLR Contracting and Service Company, Inc. has navigated through the recent difficult economic times. “Our ability to sustain and navigate through these economic conditions has nothing to do with how we react to the changes in the economic climate; but instead has everything to do with what we have put in place leading up to this time. We continue to update and execute our strategic business plan while building upon and maintaining the solid relationships we have built”, Ms. Ryce explained.
The visit was highlighted that evening when Ms. Ryce attended a keynote address by President Barack Obama. “It was an honor to be invited to share my story of success and the challenges of leading a small business during tough economic times. It was also a great privilege to hear the 44th President of the United States of America address the Caucus,” added Ms. Ryce.
