The EOC will not be celebrating the opening of a new location. Instead, it will be acknowledging transformation under the helm of its new chief executive.

“Two years ago Brian Angus joined our team as the new CEO,” said EOC Public Relations Specialist Nasreen Riahizadeh. “Since then, we have a whole new visionary process that focuses on our strategic goals.”

These new goals will all be unveiled at the ceremony on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the EOC’s Executive Courtyard Plaza, 1920 Mariposa Mall, in downtown Fresno.

The nonprofit Fresno EOC operates on an annual budget of about $160 million and employs more than 1,300 full and part-time staffers. Its activities include education, energy assistance, health programs, youth outreach and economic development.
