Approximately 70 participants from business and education as well as the Greater Washington
Board of Trade, the Northern Virginia Roundtable, and Virginia's Center for Innovative
Technology, attended a one-day workshop on April 18, 1997 to craft a common message
on Workforce issues. The April 18 meeting, facilitated by the Potomac KnowledgeWay,
was convened to communicate the needs of the business community to regional educational
institutions to help them better understand industry's Workforce
requirements, and thus, respond with specific strategies and programs.
