Featuring Keynote Speaker Dr. Peter Bishop


Established, Experienced Educator and Executive Director of Teach the Future

Leaders from across the business community have identified one of the region's most pressing issues as finding qualified workers for good jobs vital to the success of our industries. The Longview Chamber of Commerce provides resources, structure, and convening opportunities to foster region- and sector-wide collaboration among employers and educational institutions.  This approach encourages different groups addressing the same problem to establish a common goal, align their efforts, pursue separate tactics, and share results. 

This luncheon will feature Dr. Peter Bishop, former Director of the Master's Degree in Foresight at the University of Houston & Founder of the non-profit Teach the Future, who will deliver the results from the Partners in Education Superintendents Forum, a collaborative meeting between five school districts and eight local companies, which was held on June 11.  
The luncheon is designed for business and community leaders as well as educators.  The Chamber has contracted with Dr. Peter Bishop, Executive Director of Teach the Future.  Click here to register.

Dr. Bishop shared, “By giving young people the tools to engage with the future early in life, we are equipping them to face uncertainties and challenges and helping them discover their role in shaping the future. Education is meant to prepare students for the future."
