2017 Regional Summit

January 19, 2017

You are invited to the Regional Summit of the Building Illinois' Bioeconomy Consortium and the Leadership Council of Southwestern Illinois. This multi-faceted event will provide a context for all populations of Southwestern Illinois to assist our region in bridging the gap between students and jobs in the Bioeconomy and Advanced Manufacturing industries.

A set of speakers and a panel of industry employers will be the driving force of conversation while we discuss our developing region and the resources available to creating a sustainable economy with a skilled workforce.

Please reserve the morning of March 23rd, 2017 to attend this event. The event is free, provides a light breakfast, and will take place on the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Campus in the Morris University Center (2nd floor).

All participants must RSVP by March 10th, 2017. RSVPs can come in one of two ways, through a direct email to Jackie at japohlm@siue.edu or through the RSVP hotline at 618-659-6737 x 260. You may also find additional information regarding the event at www.BuildingIllinoisBio.com.
