14th Oregon Leadership Summit Where Do We Go From Here?
Monday, December 5, 2016
The 14th Leadership Summit focused on the challenge Oregon state government faces in coming years with impending budget deficits. Revenue is growing but the costs of the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) and Medicaid are growing three times faster, threatening investments Oregon needs to make in early learning and high school and college completion.
Business leaders, education stakeholders, and elected leaders shared their perspective on this issue in the morning session and over lunch.
In the afternoon breakout sessions, the Summit agenda offered participants in-depth analysis and the opportunity to weigh in on a range of issues related to growing the economy and making smart investments to help Oregon students and families succeed. These sessions included transportation infrastructure, innovation and entrepreneurship, forest management, education, health and health care, job training, and poverty reduction, among others.
