The 2012 education programming year will kick off on February 14, 2012, with the first of a three-part Education Outlook Breakfast Series that will tackle current education issues.
First up on February 14 from 7:30-9:00 am is “Moving the Needle on University and College Completion.” Leading that conversation will be Michael J. Sorrell, President of Paul Quinn College, Dan R. Jones, PhD, President & CEO of Texas A&M University-Commerce, and Betheny L. Reid, President of The Dallas County Community College District Foundation & Associate Vice Chancellor of District Development.
On April 18, the discussion will turn to an in-depth look at “Education and Workforce Readiness”, led by Richard Froeschle, Director of Labor Market and Career Information from the Texas Workforce Commission.
The last of the series in early December 2012 will feature a lively and timely dialogue on “Getting Ready for the 83rd Legislature” and the education issues expected to be front and center during that session.
Tickets for the series are $100 for members and $200 for non-members. Individual event tickets are $35 for members and $70 for non-members. Series and individual event sponsorships are available.
