Shelly Abrams, Chairperson of Think Regional, was interviewed on the Lebanon City Cable channel about the exciting agenda for the upcoming Summit on April 28, focusing on the Development of a Skilled Workforce for the 21st Century.

We have 2 interesting panels discussing the collaborative actions of major Chambers of Commerce and leading Educational institutions in our region, followed by Presentations by leading authors from Ohio: Phil DeVol, co-author of "Bridges Out of Poverty", and JD Vance, author of the best-selling book "Hillbilly Elegy". In the afternoon, Bill Muse, President Emeritus of the National Issues Forum Institute, part of the Kettering Foundation, will lead small group discussions on how our region could best take action to address the dual needs of businesses and displaced workers to fulfill the thousands of open middle-class salary jobs in technical fields in our area.
