2013 Governor's Economic Summit Results

  • 2013 Governor's Economic Summit

    Dear Friends,

    On March 18 and 19, 2013, 789 business and education leaders, workforce and economic development professionals, and other stakeholders came together for the first annual Governor’s Economic Summit at Cobo Center in Detroit. The summit, titled “Collaborating, Creating, Connecting,” accelerated efforts to match Michigan’s talented workforce with the needs of its employers over the coming years, and identified opportunities for more robust regional collaboration.

    Though this year’s summit has ended, our work has not. We must continue our conversations and collaborations to reinvent Michigan. To that end, you can find a wealth of material here:

    Thank you for your interest and ongoing efforts for Michigan. I look forward to the amazing amount of progress we’ll have made together by the time of the Governor’s 2nd Annual Economic Summit.
