I will be speaking tomorrow at the annual convention of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives. As the organization’s name suggests, ACCE includes executives from over 1400 chambers of commerce in the U.S. and Canada. I will be speaking on the business case for early childhood programs, in a session that includes Sara Watson of Pew and David Rattray, Vice President for Education and Workforce Development of the L.A. Chamber of Commerce. After the convention, I will be out of town for a few days. I may not resume regular posting until August 22nd.
