What is a State Team?

State Teams work collectively and collaboratively to develop a State Action Plan for improving education and workforce development. These plans must be realistic and achievable and will be revisited in future conferences to check on progress made. State Team members are key stakeholders in the state, including, but not limited to, leaders from chambers of commerce, workforce boards, universities, community colleges, Governor’s staff, Education Committee chairs, industry associations, school districts, foundations, nonprofits, etc. State Teams coordinate prior to the Conference, develop their State Action Plan during the Conference, and maintain momentum after the Conference by working together to implement the action items. How do I become a State Team member? Please contact Bill Symonds at william.symonds@asu.edu.
