All of us in the US have a role in advancing our competitiveness as a nation.
The National Academies will convene leaders of industry, government, research, and education from around the country on September 28, 2006, to share knowledge and discuss ways to advance U.S. competitiveness.
They will focus on education, research and innovation — action areas identified in the report, “Rising Above the Gathering Storm”, publlished earlier this year.
The National Academy is working hard to broaden the discussion across all 50 states. They are recruiting:
- State & Local Policymakers
- State & Local Economic Development Leaders
- State & Local Industry and Business Leaders
- Media, including Newspaper Editorial Boards
- School Board Members
- K-12 Teachers
- University and College Leaders
- Non-Governmental Organizations
More information on the “Convocation on Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing Regions, States, and Cities” is available online here.
If I don’t quite qualify as a business leader, then maybe I fall into the category of media as a blogger. I know that I care about energizing my regional and local economy, so I want to find a way to participate.
