The Leadership Summit is the place where Oregon’s business, elected, and community leaders work together on ideas, policies, and concrete actions to strengthen Oregon’s economy. We’re working to reach a two-part goal: create 25, 000 more jobs per year and raise our per capita income above the national average by 2020. Please join us December 12, 2011, at the Oregon Convention Center to take stock of progress and look at next steps in implementing Oregon Business Plan initiatives.
We’re also holding special follow-up summit work sessions the next day, December 13, at the Convention Center to focus more closely on implementing the education, health care, and fiscal reforms embraced by the Governor and Legislature coming out of last year’s summit. With these new policy tools in place, it’s time to deliver.
Here’s the overview:
December 12, 2011. The Oregon Leadership Summit
This year’s summit will update regional jobs and economic development opportunities, review progress on Business Plan initiatives over the past year, look at how we can support job growth in our key industries, and consider proposals to help us achieve our job creation and income goals. We’ll hear from our elected leaders on these issues, with remarks from U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkely, Governor Kitzhaber, Senate President Peter Courtney, and Co-Speakers Bruce Hanna and Arnie Roblan.
December 13, 2011. Policy Work Sessions on Education, Health Care, and Budgeting for Outcomes
In these sessions, we’ll take up the challenge of how to improve education and health care, how these issues are interconnected in state budgeting, and how budgeting reform can play a key role in education and health care reform – and in better delivery of other public services. This will be a hands-on workshop especially valuable for legislators and stakeholders.
