What will Alabama look like in 10 years? How will issues like education funding, aging infrastructure, and market financial woes affect the future of Alabama.
The University of Alabama in Huntsville, the Business Council of Alabama and Business Alabama magazine will be sponsoring a half-day conference - Alabama 2018 - What the Future Holds.
Panelists will explore these issues that will have a long-term effect on Alabama.
Three panel discussions - business, education and legislative - will include distinguished individuals to raise awareness of key issues confronting our state.
Brian Hilson, president of the Huntsville-Madison County Chamber of Commerce will moderate the business panel, which includes Marshall Deputy Director Robert Lightfoot, Huntsville attorney and UA System Trustee Joe Ritch, Chamber Chair-Elect Irma Tudor, and BCA President Billy Canary.
President Dave Williams will be among the education panelists and Vice President Lew Radonovich will moderate this panel.
Other members of the panel include State Board of Education member Mary Jane Caylor, Dr. Matthew Hughes from the State Office of Workforce Development and Caroline Novak from A+ Education Foundation.
The conference is scheduled for October 24, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at Redstone Federal Credit Union on Wynn Drive.
