Southern Pulse Newsletter, September 2022

It’s been a busy month of traveling and preparation here at CSG South, and our small but mighty team is excited to roll out all the programming, training, and publications planned for the final 3 months of the year.

We would like to thank everyone who attended our first Policy Masterclass, Growing Prosperity: Agriculture, Technology and The Future of Farming. Attendees gathered in Atlanta to learn from industry experts, toured top research laboratory Georgia Center of Innovation at Georgia Tech, as well as the Georgia Department of Agriculture, and enjoyed closing remarks and dinner with Former Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue. Our next Policy Masterclass, The Future State: Cybersecurity, Technology, and Innovation in Government Operations will take place next week in Birmingham, AL, September 27-29.  Our third and final Policy Masterclass, Anchors Aweigh: Navigating the Policy of Ports, will be a deep dive into shipping logistics and post-Covid challenges, the local and regional economic impact of ports, and the incredible technology that supports port operation. Held in none other than Savannah, Georgia, we hope you join us at the Port of Savannah this October 4-6. To submit your interest form click here.

I am so excited to welcome and congratulate the Center for the Advancement of Leadership Skills (CALS) class of 2022! Twenty-six legislators and state agency directors from across the region were selected out of an overwhelming response from our member states. CALS is an intensive, four-day, application-based leadership development program held from October 15-19 at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute in LIttle Rock, Arkansas. We can’t wait to see greet this incredible cohort next month! To see CALS alumni, and to learn more about this unique opportunity for top Southern legislators and upper management executive and judicial leaders, click here.

As fall is yet another busy time at CSG South, always stay connected through this newsletter, website, and social media for updates and new publications. We don’t want you to miss a second of the action!

As always, thank you for all your hard work in your communities and states, and know that our staff is always here to assist you.
