The Inclusive Economy
Tomorrow @ ALC
By Sean Luechtefeld on 09/20/2012 @ 06:30 PM
I hope today’s busy schedule left you feeling excited about the potential new directions for your work (if not a little tired, too). Here’s what tomorrow has in store for you.
The morning kicks off with breakfast at 7 am in the Marriott Ballroom. You’ll want to make sure you’re downstairs and ready to go, as we’ll have a special film screening at 7:30 while people finish their meals. Then, we’ll jump right into our Conversation with Accountholders, moderated by Under Secretary for Education Martha Kanter.
After the morning Plenary, we’ll have two more blocks of Concurrent Sessions. At 9:30, consider checking out “Building Credit as an Asset: The Power of Rent” in Virginia B, brought to you by our friends at Credit Builders Alliance. At 11 in Maryland B, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation will present “Piggy Banks and the Public Sector,” which will explore effective partnerships to promote children’s savings.
Perhaps the saddest news of the day is that like all good things, the ALC must come to an end. To conclude this year’s Conference, our Closing Plenary will offer a Call to Action and mark the official launch of the Assets & Opportunity Network. If you didn’t sign up for the Network when you registered, note that it’s not too late!
After the Closing Plenary, buses depart for Capitol Hill Visits outside the 24th Street Entrance of the Hotel. If you’re not attending the Hill Visits, we’ve got something for you, too. At 2 pm, the second national Poverty Summit kicks off with a Poverty Simulation in the Thurgood Marshall Ballroom.
We hope the last day of your Conference is enjoyable, and that you’ll let us know how we did by dropping off a Conference Evaluation on your way out!
