CONFERENCE SUMMARY

In today's economy, jobs and economic growth are dependent upon the skills and education of America's workforce. As Alabama's job market continues to experience challenges, it is essential that we work together to improve our workforce through innovative approaches to education, training, and workforce development, while reducing long-standing and frustrating experiences with unemployment and with jobs left vacant as qualified employees are sought.

This conference provides a unique opportunity for business leaders, educators, governments, and nonprofits to discuss ideas that will advance the development of the state's workforce. We invite you and your colleagues to participate in this important conference.

WHO'S COMING

Workforce development can help position the State's working age population to intersect with ever changing economic opportunities. Moreover, workforce development can attract economic opportunities to the State. In that regard, workforce development is a critical strategic process requiring careful thought and planning.
—Steve Reeves, HR Director for City of Auburn and President of the AAPPA

Proper career and workforce training are the keys to ensuring Alabama maintains a qualified workforce. Alabama continues to be the envy of our sister southeastern states and the rest of the nation in attracting aerospace, automobile and rocket manufacturing facilities, and it is incumbent on us to provide our children the education and skills that those jobs demand.
—William J. Canary, President and CEO, Business Council of Alabama
