Thurston County educators are working hard to build a bridge between the world of learning and the world of work.
On February 14, attendees of the Thurston Chamber’s Annual Education Summit and EXPO will learn how local schools are preparing students to enter the workforce—ensuring that schools are, in fact, training the next generation of employees for today’s jobs. We’ll also hear from business owners about the skills they want new employees to have in order to be successful at work.
Forum will be entertaining, engaging and interactive and includes an Education EXPO for educators to connect with the Forum attendees and the business community. The EXPO will be available starting at 11 a.m., showcasing what schools in our Thurston County are teaching our students. Come and find out what is going on in education! We’ll have over 20 exhibitors.
This event begins at 11 a.m. at Hotel RL Olympia. Forum includes lunch and is $35 for general admission, $25 for prepaid Chamber members and $30 for members at the door. Visit thurstonchamber.com for tickets and additional information.
The Chamber encourages advance registration for the Education Summit & EXPO.
