Save the Date! SSTI's Annual Conference Set for October 21-23

July 01, 2009

Mark your calendar for Oct. 21-23 to attend SSTI's 13th annual conference Seize The Moment in Overland Park, Kansas! Past attendees know SSTI's conference is the premiere professional development event for the TBED community. And 2009 will be no exception. Back by popular demand, we will be offering an array of pre-conference workshops on Oct. 21.

The challenges facing the economy reveal the need has never been greater for universities, companies, and government working together to spark innovation and seize the opportunities presented by the current economy.

It is time to strengthen state and regional growth strategies focused on knowledge, innovation and technology entrepreneurship - three keys for technology-based economic development. Those places making smart TBED investments are positioning themselves to lead the next economy. They know TBED works.

Successful TBED practitioners at universities, states and regional organizations understand that innovation and change require real working partnerships and cooperation with regions across sectors. That's why the nation's TBED community gathers each year at SSTI's annual conference.

Keeping with years past, the conference agenda will be set by SSTI members to ensure the most timely and relevant topics for transforming regional economies. Look for more information on SSTI's conference website soon. Please contact Noelle Sheets, director of membership services, at sheets @ ssti.org for sponsorship opportunities and if you have any questions.
