Women Making History

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

To Celebrate Women’s History Month this March, our friends at South Shore Living Magazine put together a list of five inspiring women who are making an impact on the South Shore community. We’re proud to say that our own Executive Director, Michele Pecoraro, was featured on this year’s “Influential Women of the South Shore” list for her tireless (and important!) work creating plans and garnering support for the 2020 Commemoration.
Michele graduated from Bridgewater State College (as it was formerly known) with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education and Communications, and gained experience and accolades in the education, communications, and marketing sectors during her tenure at various schools, WATD-FM, Pilgrim Health Care, and Plimoth Plantation, and most recently as Vice President of Operations and International Market for the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce. In March 2014, she took on a new role at the helm of Plymouth 400, an organization with a small staff but a mission that is global in scale.
As Executive Director of Plymouth 400, Michele leads the organization’s engagement efforts, working with legislators at the local, state, and federal level to create Commissions to further the organization’s planning and fundraising efforts. She also works closely with state agencies, tourism entities, municipalities, businesses, and nonprofit organizations to create partnerships and ensure that all participating units are working behind one cohesive message and strategy. In her two years leading this organization, Michele has increased engagement at all levels, created a Statewide initiative called the Massachusetts 400 Forum, and implemented a five-year strategy for fundraising and planning the organization’s Signature Programs and Events.
