Economic Development Session
The class of 2013-14 held their Economic Development session a week ago last Friday at the Research Park in Los Alamos. Katy Korkos, session Chair, and Cyndi Wells, Board Liaison, welcomed everyone and then facilitated a discussion on Transformational Leadership. Scott Randall, LACDC Exec Dir and current class member presented "What is Leadership?" and was followed by Nicholas Seet from UNM-LA on "Entrepreneurship". Cyndi then moderated a panel of people doing business in Los Alamos. The class really enjoyed the interchange. After lunch, the class worked on their class project for awhile and then Harry Burgess, LA County Administrator, discussed Economic Vitality in Los Alamos County. He was followed by a panel who discussed various Financing options with the class. Aaron Menefee, LANL CFO, and David Pesiri, LANL Director of Tech Transfer then presented information on Lab budgets and technology transfer initiatives taking place. The last subject of the day was on Tourism and its Economic Impact with Mike Lippiat, LA Meeting & Visitor Bureau and Tom Long, Pajarito Mountain General Manager. There was again a lot of discussion and everyone learned a lot. Here are just a few pictures from that session.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
