The Academy's Center for Intergovernmental Partnerships (the Center/CIP) hosted a discussion around the problems and effective practices related to the significant challenge of finding and training the workforce necessary to execute critical infrastructure projects.

Infrastructure Development in Atlanta, GA

The panelists detailed their perspectives on the current workforce situation and discussed potential solutions. CEO and President of the Academy Terry Gerton and two of the Center's Executive Board Members (Henry Cisneros and Sarah Rosen Wartell) opened the session with an excellent discussion of the vital need to improve intergovernmental systems. Ed Mortimer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce set the stage for the panel. He commented on why there is a problem and how this problem can also be a tremendous opportunity to alter our current paradigm for infrastructure and workforce development. Tom Shoop (GovExec's Editor at Large) moderated a panel that consisted of:

  • Matt Chase, CEO & Executive Director, National Association of Counties and Academy Fellow
  • Susan Fallon, Senior Vice President, Monster Government Solutions
  • John V. Ladd, Administrator, Office of Apprenticeship, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor
