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? You can sign up on the Global Pathways Institute website or be recruited by a State Team Leader.

I am a State Team Member and plan to register during Early Bird Registration Tier 1 or Tier 2. Do I still receive the $50 Early Bird discount?

Only one discount can be credited to your registration fee. State Team Members do not receive an additional discount for registering early and should register using the discount code provided to them by their State Team Leader.
