Columbia Gorge Education and Industry Summit

The Columbia Gorge Education and Industry Summit will be held Friday, April 18, 2014 at the newly-opened Fort Dalles Readiness Center on the campus of Columbia Gorge Community College in The Dalles. The purpose of the summit is to grow the Columbia River Gorge economy by fostering seamless cross-sector instruction of all ages in partnership with industry, education and training providers, students and parents.

Our Goal: Industry understands education; education understands industry.

Summit planning is coordinated by a team representing all key sectors. This will be a working conference, with opportunity for cross-sector involvement leading to concrete outcomes. We need to create a bridge to promote bi-state collaboration, and encourage legislative awareness of common regional issues in common. We invite your representatives to attend. Please consider sending counselors; school district, college and universities administrators; and board members. We are also inviting industry leaders, economic development professionals, and chamber execs.
