2018 Regional Issues Summit
2018 Regional Issues Summit
Presented by the Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance and Leadership Northern Colorado
Tuesday, December 4, 2018 7:00 a.m. to noon
Embassy Suites, Loveland, CO
Northern Colorado is one of the state’s most vibrant and livable areas. It is also one of the fastest growing parts of Colorado. The Regional Issues Summit is a forum that will bring attention to some of the larger issues facing Northern Colorado. The half-day program will feature expert presentations, panel conversations and participant reactions. Business, civic, education and government leaders are invited to attend to help identify possible solutions to the area challenges.
We are thrilled to announce our keynote presentation by Jodie Swee with XYZ University. She will talk about Generations@Work and Cultivating A Collaborative Workforce Environment.
A core challenge over the next decade will be to attract and retain a skilled work force as the labor market continues to tighten and technology continues to evolve. This situation is exacerbated as companies find themselves managing four generations of American workers–each with their own distinct characteristics, values, and attitudes toward work. To successfully integrate these generations for a cohesive workplace, companies will need to embrace changes in recruitment, benefits, along with creating a corporate culture that actively demonstrates respect and inclusion for its multi-generational workforce. You will learn how your organization can embrace generational diversity and foster a culture of collaboration, acceptance, and productivity.
Other topics that will be covered at the Regional Issues Summit include Water, Transportation and the NCLA’s 2019 Policy Agenda.
More than 200 business professionals and community leaders are expected at the Regional Issues Summit.
Cost to attend is : $40/members (Loveland, Fort Collins & Greeley Chambers); $50/non-member; $350/table for ten
The Regional Issues Summit is presented by Leadership Northern Colorado, the Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance, the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce, the Loveland Chamber of Commerce, the Greeley Chamber of Commerce, Upstate Colorado and One NOCO.
