The registration page is now open for the 2017 Think Regional Summit.  You won't want to miss this event!

Continuing our focus on collaborative actions to help facilitate greater economic growth and an increase in higher-paying, career-oriented jobs, we will focus on activities and insights that can build a stronger skilled and educated workforce across our region, which is key to attracting the investments that lead to greater economic growth and higher paying, career jobs to Southwest Ohio.

Our key speakers will be J.D. Vance, best-selling author of "Hillbilly Elegy" and Phil DeVol, co-author of "Bridges Out of Poverty", both Ohio natives.  We are also pleased to have Dr. Bill Muse, President Emeritus of the National Issues Forum, a part of the Kettering Foundation, who will help us lead the afternoon Issue Action Group discussions with the format of "Deliberative Decision Making" that National Issues Forum employs to facilitate discussions of community issues across the country.

You can reserve your spot today at the EventBrite web site at  We look forward to seeing you at the Summit on April 28!
