Senator Lamar Alexander will keynote the first day of the 2013 Tennessee Valley Corridor National Summit, which will be held in Oak Ridge, Tn., May 29-30.
The 2013 TVC Summit will focus on energy, advanced manufacturing, workforce development, innovation and entrepreneurism. Senator Alexander is expected to update a major energy address he made at the last Summit held in Oak Ridge in 2009.
Congressman Chuck Fleischmann from Tennessee’s third district will host the Summit, and other key decision-makers representing academia, government and industry from Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina will be participating.
Since the first TVC Summit was held in Oak Ridge in 1995, this annual event has linked the science and technology assets in the Tennessee Valley into a nationally recognized regional economic development effort. The mission of the TVC is to sustain the region’s existing federal missions, to compete for new missions, and to leverage public/private relationships for high-quality job growth.
