2019 Skills Summit

Registration for Skills Summit 2019 is OPEN! Join us this February 5-7, 2019 in Washington DC.

We are gearing up to make skills a top priority following the Congressional elections this November.

Join us for:

  • Two days of deep dives into what the future of federal skills policy looks like and what that means for your legislators today
  • Plenaries about current workforce policy objectives from the policymakers themselves
  • An opportunity to convene with colleagues in the field from across the country
  • Meetings with your legislators about your workforce needs back home


The Summit is an opportunity to share your expertise with legislators and impact the future of education and workforce policy. Hope to see you there!
