We are Essex Initiatives, a nonprofit organization promoting the Town of Essex for community and commercial interests.

Essex Initiatives was formed by a small group of Essex residents who wanted to make their community an even better place to live and work. Today, we support the community through promotion, events, and beautification projects. Any member of the community can join our working committees!

Board of Directors:
Ellen Cormier, President, Strategic Planning Chair
Eli Goff, Vice President
Dana Cormier, Secretary, Marketing Chair
Sheila Sullivan, Treasurer
Karol Kempster, Beautification Chair
Kat Moser
