The New Economy: Rethink, Realign, Reinvent

DECEMBER 5-7, 2012

Marriott Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel Arlington, Virginia


The 2012 National Employment Conference, "The New Economy: Rethink, Realign, Reinvent" is now accepting proposals for presentations due no later than Friday, September 28, 2012. The conference includes the following five themes: 1) Collaborating with Business; 2) High Growth Fields; 3) Bridging Research and Practice; 4) Opportunities in "Middle Skills Jobs"; and 5) Employment for Specific Populations.

Please note that the Conference Committee has a strong interest in the following two themes:

•    High Growth Fields: We invite presentations about industries or sectors currently experiencing or predicted to experience trends of high growth (e.g. healthcare; science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); food and hospitality; and retail).

•    Opportunities in “Middle Skills Jobs”: We would like to see presentations on jobs that require some postsecondary education or training but not necessarily a bachelor’s degree (e.g. electricians, accounting clerks, laboratory technicians, plumbers, and law enforcement personnel).
