The issues state leaders from across the political spectrum can agree on are rare, but the promotion and cultivation of homegrown entrepreneurs might just be one of them. State leaders know entrepreneurs not only create jobs, but also contribute to an increase in wages and standards of living. But bringing a new product or service to market can be a daunting prospect for innovators, from gaining access to capital to navigating the legal and regulatory landscape. Experts in entrepreneurship will discuss how state policies can either hinder or foster that entrepreneurial spirit based on emerging research.

A 2011 study by Deloitte for the Manufacturing Institute found that American manufacturing companies could not fill as many as 600,000 positions—or 5 percent of manufacturing jobs—due to a lack of qualified candidates, and 56 percent of manufacturers anticipate that shortage will increase in the next three to five years. Technological advancements, particularly in the manufacturing area, mean that workers need more specialized skills to both get and keep jobs. To get to those skilled workers, companies must make a decision: Look for new, qualified employees or retrain their current workforce. State leaders recognize this problem and are stepping up. This webinar, presented by CSG’s State Pathways to Prosperity initiative, will focus on how states are creating or expanding programs aimed at helping the private sector get the skilled labor force they need to be competitive.

Interstate compacts often are seen as a way for states to work cooperatively to avoid federal intervention; however there is considerable precedence for federal participation in interstate compacts. In fact, federal officials are active in several compacts, with participation ranging from congressional consent to direct federal involvement. During this webinar, Rick Masters, special counsel to CSG’s National Center for Interstate Compacts, will discuss the role the federal government plays in the development and implementation of interstate compacts. This is the second in a series of webinars on the history and use of interstate compacts.
