We invite you to attend a conference, Workforce Education: New Jersey as a Laboratory for America, on Tuesday, May 1 from 9:00am to 12:30pm on the campus of Gloucester County Institute of Technology in Sewell, NJ.

The event, hosted by Washington-based policy organizations Opportunity America, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and Advance CTE and co-sponsored by the NJ Business & Industry Association, the NJ Council of County Colleges, and the NJ Council of County Vocational-Technical Schools, will bring together stakeholders from across New Jersey focused on the challenge of workforce education.

Robert Asaro-Angelo, commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, will deliver the morning keynote. Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney will deliver the lunch keynote. Two additional sessions will feature employers, educators, and administrators from across the state, along with researchers from Opportunity America, AEI, and Advance CTE. See attached for a tentative agenda as well as a one-page description of the event.

The top goal for the day is: to look ahead to the future – how can the new administration continue and consolidate the gains of recent years?

Please RSVP to attend the event by Monday, April 23rd by visiting the following link: www.aei.org/events/workforce-education-new-jersey-as-a-laboratory-for-america/.

Kind regards,

Andrew and Mike
