Workforce Boards National Conference

Yours truly will be on the road for a few days to attend the 2008 annual National Conference of Workforce Boards in Washington, D.C.

This will be a great opportunity to meet other people like myself who are involved in workforce development from communities across the United States. Among the many workshops and seminars that I'll be attending, keynote speakers will include:


  • Daniel Pink, best-selling author and expert on innovation, competition and the changing world of work will speak at the Opening Session on Sunday morning.
  • Newt Gingrich, author, speaker and architect of the "Contract With America" will present at Monday's Keynote Session.
  • Gene B. Sperling, former National Economic Advisor to President Clinton, consultant and writer, will kick-off the closing session on Tuesday.

In addition, I plan to do some sightseeing around the city, visit some Eastern Catholic parishes around the metro area, and visit some places where I used to live out in the Maryland suburbs when I was a kid.

Looks for news and photos from the trip. I'll be leaving tomorrow.

Y'all be sure to have a great weekend!

    Hey Earl, your car isn't in front of my house - either someone stole it, or you don't need to leave it. Did you get the e-mail?
