AIA and NDIA are pleased to announce the upcoming STEM Workforce Division Meeting being held in conjunction with Washington STEM and The Boeing Company on July 11-12, 2012. The meeting will be held at The Boeing Company's Customer Experience Center in Renton, WA.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a statewide forum to share best practices, coalesce STEM education activity, and make commitments to drive greater impact for students, our communities and state. The target audience is AIA and NDIA members and Washington state business leaders, educators, policymakers, and community stakeholders.

Key sessions include a roundtable discussion with STEM industry leaders, innovations and promising practices within PK-12 and postsecondary education, the role of STEM Networks in advancing STEM education and local economic development, and a Q&A with gubernatorial candidates Rob McKenna and Jay Inslee.

Given your leadership on STEM education in Washington, we sincerely hope that you can join us for this important gathering.

Space is limited.  We encourage you to register early!

About Washington STEM:
Washington STEM is a statewide nonprofit advancing equity, excellence, and innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. Launched in March 2011, we invest in and lift up breakthrough ideas and promising practices that bridge education and our economy through STEM. Together with educators, businesses, and communities, we are reimagining STEM education for every student, improving opportunities for those most underserved and underrepresented in STEM fields. We will be successful when all students in our state are STEM literate; prepared for and succeed in post-secondary STEM pathways; and obtain family wage-earning jobs, particularly in STEM fields.
