2013 Regional Forum Results
During the 2013 Regional Economic Forum series, regional leaders were asked to identify top priorities in several categories through a deliberative process that engaged a range of stakeholders. This report summarizes those results to help set an agenda for action leading up to and including the 2013 Summit.
The Forums engaged over 1700 regional leaders representing business, education, government, labor, environment and as well as elected officials to identify top priorities in workforce, infrastructure, regulations, innovation, capital, and other areas critical to the regions’ prosperity.
Forum participants discussed which of these priorities could be most effectively addressed through collaboration with other regions and state partners through the Economic Summit. You can find blog posts about each Regional Forum on caeconomy.org.
