  • Political landscape and skills policy briefing
  • Connecting the on-the-ground realities to the DC skills dialogues
  • Team-based Hill prep
  • Evening reception

November 21, 8 AM - 4 PM

BLU will make hotel reservations on behalf of all registered participants for a one-night stay at The Madison Hotel, checking in on November 20. Attendees will be responsible for all incidentals as well as covering the costs of additional nights, except for when travel schedules necessitate an additional night in Washington DC (e.g., cross country travel, or less accessible airports). Please email Hayley Kaplan if you need to request an additional hotel night. 

We hope you'll join us for the opportunity to engage with key national policymakers on the skill and training issues impacting your industry and to elevate the innovative, collaborative solutions you've been using to address these challenges at the local level.  

The registration deadline is October 23, 2019, so be sure to register today.
