US Congressman Tom McClintock Featured Speaker at Business/Education Summit on September 13

Event Aimed at Building a Network of Stakeholders to Create a Prosperous Economy for Amador County

On Friday, September 13th, local corporations, education and nonprofit organizations will come together, at Thomi’s Banquet Room, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM, to raise awareness of the critical role the business community plays in partnering with schools and other stakeholders to support the learning needs of students and develop Amador’s future workforce.

This event is sponsored by the Amador Community College Foundation and will feature US Congressman, Tom McClintock speaking on “Education as the Driver for Economic Vitality” and Supervisor John Plasse presenting, “Local Solutions for Higher Education.”  A question and answer session will follow.  $10.00 donation at the door includes buffet lunch. 

“Because companies provide careers that are the basis for prosperity, they are the ones who can still persuasively say to students, if you work hard in school, careers and success will follow,”‖ said Supervisor Plasse, who serves as Board Chair of the Amador Community College Foundation.  “Our intention for the business/education summit is to further the conversation about what companies can do to help young people succeed educationally and economically.”

ACCF invites leaders in business, education and community organizations together at the Business/Education Summit to solicit input on Amador’s needs for workforce training and to begin to forge businesses /education networks that lead to increasing the chances for students to complete high school and successfully transition into postsecondary education and career pathways. 

Email Karen Dickerson  to reserve lunch.
